Here is a lovely 2-sided paper featuring two wonderful Edmund Dulac lithographs gleaned from a damaged a 1983 reference book on children's book illustrators. The originals of these illustrations were originally included in the 1911 edition of "Stories From Hans Andersen". The captions and stories are -
The stories and captions are -
'The Fairy dropped her shimmering garment, drew back the branches, and a moment after was hidden within their depths.' [ from "The Garden of Paradise"]
'The Merman King had been for many years a widower, but his old mother kept house for him; she was a clever woman, but so proud of her noble birth that she wore twelve oysters on her tail, while other grandees were only allowed six.' [from "The Mermaid"]
The heavy, 2-sided paper is smooth and clean and the lithography is clear and bold. The heavy paper measures 8.25" x 11" (21x28 cm) and both illustrations are enormously frame-worthy. There are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. Perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page-making, collage ... either image would be perfect to frame and gift for the new baby's or your young reader's room.
You are purchasing an original 1983 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, by USPS 1st Class Mail.
