Above scan is of the interiors of the front and back covers of the first 8 books from the 'Renkli Çocuk Kitapları' series published by Turkey's Arkın Kitabevi in 1966. When we were kids, me and my brother had savored these books via their reprints in the 1970s and one of my first, if not the first, exposure to the Big Bad Wolf was from these interior cover designs, hence the placement of the BBW illustration from it in the masthead of this blog!
When Arkın published a further 8 books from this series in 1967, the design of the interiors of the covers changed, but the BBW was featured in two of the total four new designs:

If anyone has seen these illustrations elsewhere and/or has any hint/info on their origial source, PLEASE let me know!!...
