You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Jack-O-Lantern (Look Closer...Or Farther)

Published since 1925, The New Yorker has run more than its share of artful holiday covers. October 1961 brought this Halloween work by Anatol Kovarsky.  A frequent contributor of cartoons as well as covers, this illustrator was celebrated for his use of pattern and color. This example from 1961 demonstrates his mastery of just those elements as the artist uses stylized Halloween symbols to form the face of a jack-o-lantern.
