When I was in college I began to earnestly collect children's books and works illustrated by David Palladini were some of the first. I know he still works as an illustrator, but I haven't seen anything new in a long time, so it was fun to find this brochure from 1970 at the flea market.
The brochure was published by Eaton Laboratories, Division of the Norwich Pharmacal Company. They put out a series of, as they called them, "vignettes based on 'Troubled Waters,' a manuscript of the late Benjamin S. Abeshouse, M. D., a practicing urologist whose lifetime avocaton was the collection of historical data dealing with the influence of genitourinary disease in the lives of famous men and women."
This particular piece is about Henry VIII. I thought it appropriate since "The Tudors" begins its third season tonight on Showtime. Below are the pages of illustrations. For any Palladini fan this is a nice little find.
And for a moment of levity I present in honor of Henry the following which has a good beat and it's easy to dance to.
