Richard Kaljo "Illustratsioon.

Richard Kaljo was a legendary book illustrator. Through his characters many of us know the three musketeers or an endless amount of other heroes. They are known the way Kaljo depicted them.
“Viieteistkümneaastane kapten” was one of Kaljo’s best-known works, where he could implement his best sides of illustration skills - abundance of details, adventurous, clear depiction and diversity of characters, subtlety of lines. Kaljo achieves with extremely scanty means – ink, pen and power of imagination – something that the majority of others do not achieve with considerably more abundant equipment. Furthermore – in Kaljo’s case it is actually complicated to put into words why his creation has obsessed so many and so powerfully. Here we obviously lack artistic terms, but maybe the key to Kaljo’s success lies in his ability always to remain himself: being simultaneously a boy enchanted by adventures and a professional artist.
