Mora update

Bridal veil falls

Peter Hiller, curator of the Jo Mora Trust, writes in with a few points and corrections, duly incorporated on our post about Jo Mora.  Thanks so much, Peter!

Co-worker Charles picked up a reproduction of the Salinas rodeo poster.  So many fantastic details:

Jo Mora could’ve done a fantastic Where’s Waldo I bet.  (Why did they feel the need to change the American title from the original English “Where’s Wally?” I wonder?”


Jo Mora probably would’ve been good at wimmelbilderbuch of all kinds, a term I just learned from the Where’s Wally? wiki.

Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Hans Jurgen Press are regarded as the fathers of the format.


Brueghel the Elder’s Netherlandish Proverbs.  Can you spot all 112?
