The Brothers Hildebrandt

I had never known the names of the illustrators known as the Brothers Hildebrandt before, but, like many people, I've certainly seen their artwork. Perhaps most famously, they designed the original poster for Star Wars as well as three Tolkien calendars. They're also prolific book illustrators. According to The Brothers Hildebrandt home page, the brothers (Greg and Tim) have illustrated "text books, children's books, calendars, book covers, posters, comic books, advertisements, movie posters, production design for films, collectables and trading card games." There's a lengthy bio on their site as well as some of their many illustrations. Via Librarians' Internet Index.
