Welcome to John R. Neill's Online Gallery
We have recently inherited a collection of beautiful sketches, pen and inks, and full color illustrations by our grandfather. There are more drawings than we have wall space, so instead of storing them in our attics for another sixty years, we have decided to make them available to collectors to enjoy.
Neill is famous for the thirty five volumes of Wizard of Oz* books he illustrated. This includes the four editions he also wrote, The Wonder City of Oz, The Scalawagons of Oz, Lucky Bucky in Oz, and The Run Away of Oz. Yet some of his best work was done for other books, periodicals, and newspapers. You will find some rare pieces that have never been seen by the public.
We are also including some books from our grandparent's library. They include Oz books, other books illustrated by Neill, along with some books from his personal collection. A few of these also contain his rare personal bookplate that his friend Joseph Coll designed for him.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Jory and Dale
