Adolphe Millot

Adolphe Millot
Do you know Adolphe Millot?

Over the weekend I came across the work of this Natural History illustrator from France. There doesn't seem to be much information about him other than a small article written after his death in 1921. His work was for Petit Larousse, a French encyclopedic dictionary of which there are many examples;  you can see here. 

I wonder how much 
influence Millot was
for Derian?

Hope you had a great weekend

  1. Wow, those images are amazing, I have loved the birdy posts just lately. That Hawk in the storm was fabulous, what an amazing bird to blow in. We managed to see about 6 red kites above us on a walk recently, they were rather big and just hung in the air, a bit scary.... Thanks for showing these. :)
