Geppetto story: I don’t think the first illustrator has actually been passed for the 70 years for the work to become public domain, Carlo Chiostri, 1863-1939. The author of the Pinocchio story, Carlo Collodi was 1826-1890 so the story is public domain but the illustrator was much younger than the author. — Okay, yes, it’s been over 70 years since Chiostri passed. In the meantime I’d gone and found the previous publication and got stuck having to read (try to make out) alot of the Italian. That illustrator is Enrico Mazzanti, 1850-1910 and I’ll put the link with the whole PD story, about 230 pages, beneath here. Mr. Reppetto’s photo and material might not be any public domain.
