Here are two beautiful illustrations from Edmund Dulac, gleaned from a damaged a 1983 children's book illustrations reference book. The originals of both lithographs were included in the 1911 edition of "Stories From Hans Andersen" in the story 'The Nightingale'. The captions read -
'"Is it possible?" said the gentleman-in-waiting. "I should never have thought it was like that. How common it looks. Seeing so many grand people must have frightened all its colors away."'
'Among these trees lived a nightingale, which sang so deliciously, that even the poor fisherman, who had plenty of other things to do, lay still to listen to it, when he was out at night drawing in his nets.'
Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) was one of the great figures from the Golden Age of Illustration. Born in Toulouse, France, Dulac was artistically inclined from adolescence. He switched from law to art and moved to London where he was in tremendous demand from publishers.
The heavy, 2-sided paper measures 8.25" x 11" (21x28 cm), is smooth and clean and without tears, folds, creases, or marks. Perfect to frame for the new adventure reader ... perfect for your collage work, tag and card creations.
