IN PICTURES 2 – THE HATTYTOWN TALES

Whilst I finish transcribing the interview with Hattytown Tales animator Rory Fellowes here’s some more on set images from ‘The Royal Portrait’ episode. The images are taken from the book of the same name published by World Distributors in 1970. Ivor Wood’s workmanship again is on full show, it’s just a shame the images aren’t quite in focus.

In Pictures – The Hattytown Tales

So I finally got my hands on some of the picture books for The Hattytown Tales and more importantly some images from the show. Whilst the images aren’t the best (not even in the book) you can see with increased detail the workmanship of Ivors creations, which is fantastic.

The images below are all taken from 1970s “Bobby’s Flower Garden” and tells the story of Bobby the policeman’s garden of flowers. Priced at 25p back in the day it’s a great little find. It was the first of a series of books that eventually went fully illustrated after Hattytown had aired the first time. Hope you enjoy.
