Illustrations by Shigeru Hatsuyama for Thumbelina

Primarily known as an illustrator of children’s books, Hatsuyama was also a successful sōsaku-hanga artist. During the mid-thirties, as Japanese society became more and more militarized, he stopped making illustrations because he objected to creating propaganda pictures for children, and he devoted his energy to prints instead. Only after the war did Hatsuyama return to illustrating and book design.
