Angi Petrescu Tiparescu - The Stoneman-Omul de Piatra

What a fine Romanian illustrator! Her illustrations are so elegant and exuberant. There is a continuous movement in them, colors and textures dancing forever on the sound of  contemporary music, oblivious of time.   I was very pleased to see that she is known also abroad. Puss in boots and The Stoneman are her most famous works there. I have read a blog recently, where the author thought her to be a kind of Russian prince, based on her name. Well I doubt the author knows much Russian, but at least it knew her name and treasured Perrault's tale based on her illustrations. And that is something!
