The most terrifying illustrations for a children’s book

Sanya Glisic made these creepy illustrations for an old German book from 1844 called Struwwelpeter. The book is a huge collection of very clear cut stories to teach children morals. See that terrifying creature with scissors for it’s head? He’s the tailor who comes to chop off children’s thumbs if they continue to suck their thumbs after their mothers tell them not too. Moral of the story: it’s a cruel world.
