Hi Lightsmith, did you know in 1658 the first illustrated book for children was published in Germany?

And this was without the aid of the colour wheel which got invented 8 years later. Now call me a conspiracy theorist if you will, but I find it utterly amazing that the Germans could possibly have produced an illustrated book for children without the aid of a colour wheel or refrigerated elastic bands. It becomes even more astounding when you consider that this children’s book actually included un-retouched images of people with eyebrows. The mind literally boggles.
