Little is known about the Italian painter from France, Manuel Orazi, other than the fact that he was an excellent lithographer and Art Nouveau illustrator. His work could be found in newspapers, in the design of book covers, sheet music covers, and opera posters. In 1895 he collaborated with author Austin De Croz to create a grotesquely aesthetic occult calendar called the Calendrier Magique with Art Nouveau black magic recommendations, printed in a print run of 777 copies for the coming year 1896. Each double spread imitated a Christian calendar (names of days, iconography). In fact, it was a parody of the migratory tablets, and interest in it arose from convincing illustrations.

Edmund Dulac was born in 1882 into a family of the Toulouse bourgeoisie. His father, a clothier by trade, was involved in the restoration of old paintings, and his maternal uncle was interested in works of Oriental art: Japanese prints, Persian and Indian miniatures. So it is not surprising that Edmund already began to paint at an early age.

After receiving a bachelor's degree in 1899, Dulac entered the University of Toulouse at the Faculty of Law. At the same time, he listens to lectures of the Toulouse Academy of Fine Arts, where he receives numerous awards for 1900. This success prompted him to leave the university and devote himself entirely to studying at the Academy, which was directed at the time by Jean-Paul Laurence. After several years of study in Paris, he moved to London and in 1912 obtained British citizenship

The first work of E. Dulac in London was a series of 60 illustrations for the complete works of the Brontë sisters, commissioned by the bookseller and publisher Joseph Dent. This order was a testament to the high level of the 22-year-old artist. His work attracted the attention of the Leicester Gallery, which commissioned him to illustrate the collection of fairy tales "A Thousand and One Nights." This collection of colorful illustrations by the young artist was published in Great Britain in 1907.

Walter Molino (1915-1997) is an Italian illustrator. Born in Reggio Emilia. He began his professional debut as an illustrator and cartoonist in 1935 for the newspaper Il Popolo d'Italia and the children's magazines Il Monello and L'Intrepido. Walter devotes a lot of time to the making of comics and is quickly becoming a recognized master of book and magazine graphics. Since 1941, Molino has been the official illustrator of the popular Milan weekly La Domenica del Corriere, which was published from 1899 to 1989. He also collaborated with the women's magazine Grand Hotel, making illustrations in the "cineromanzi" section of comic stories, romantic or melodramatic genres, where comic book characters were famous movie actors.
