...Of course, it wasn't Baum's illustrator, but reminded me of something
here in the 1980s. A picture book was an absolutely smash hit, and spun off
into cards, wrapping paper, calendars etc etc, diaries, giftbooks, you name
it. The illustrator's pics were used in these, and she got a cut. The
author, whose text wasn't used, didn't.
It wasn't me, by the way!
And Charlie, CAL is Copyright payments - if your stuff gets copied in
schools etc, payments are made, which are supposed to be shared. Alas, it
hinges on being able to contact an illustrator one never had any contact
with, and a publisher that has since been sold on or swallowed or otherwise
digested three times.
