Oz art by John R. Neill

After author Frank Baum lost contact with W.W. Denslow, who illustrated his first book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, he turned to Philadelphia born artist John R. Neill (aka Jno. R. Neill) to bring Dorothy and her pals to life.

Neill also illustrated Oz titles penned by himself as well as for author Ruth Plumly Thompson, who kept Baum's work alive.

Here are a few of the awesome works of art that Neill did for Baum.
