Here are two charming Miska Petersham illustrations gleaned from a 1926 collection of children's poems, stories, fables, songs, and art from France.
Two beautiful papers are here, separate but fit together nicely - wonderfully frame-worthy and darling images for your art. The illustrations were created 85+ years ago - a lovely map in two parts, created with a palette taken straight from a box of 8-crayons. Shabbily cottage sweet - with French icons of hoop skirts, powdered wigs, castles and cathedrals, whimsical whales and fishes, mountains, crowns, and palaces.
Petersham's work is charmingly simple and remains timeless. Each of the two heavy papers measures 8" x 10.875" (20x28 cm), and both are smooth and clean, the engraving is strong and clear, and the papers show little tanning. The edges are clean and smooth, the colors are sweet and bright, and there are no folds, tears, mark, or creases.
The images will be delightful subjects to frame and gift to a new mother for the little one's nursery or perhaps for your own little one's room. Wonderful for your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage.
You are purchasing two original 1926 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
