Dark Jungle Woodcuts. WARNING: JUNGLE NUDITY!

June 18, 2012

The woodcut engravings on the front and back cover of Across the Wide Dark Jungle are by Paul Landacre, originally published in the 1904 novel Green Mansions by William Henry Hudson.

There are several other woodcuts by Landacre that I considered using in the module. I really liked this first one as a depiction of Lung Eatin’ Hayes, but my inkjet printer couldn’t print it with enough detail…

Next are some illustrations from a South America exploration book that caught my eye, but the greyscale details didn’t reproduce well on my printer. (Another one of these was seen in this post.) I liked how these kept with the hunting and trading theme of Across the Wide Dark Jungle:

One last woodcut. Electric Megatherium? Sloths are true monsters…
