Product Description

Oh, my most favorite story from childhood! Wind in the Willows!

A universal, gentle childhood favorite, here is a darling lithograph from a cover-less 1937 copy of Kenneth Grahame's timeless classic, beautifully illustrated by Arthur Rackham. This lithograph features everyone setting up for a picnic and is captioned -

'Today, however, though they were civil enough, they seemed preoccupied'

Arthur Rackham is widely regarded as one of the leading illustrators from the 'Golden Age' of British book illustration which encompassed the years from 1900 until the start of the First World War. During that period, there was a strong market for high quality illustrated books that typically were given as Christmas gifts.

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, shows light margin tanning and the edges are smooth and clear. The paper is clean and bright, the lithography is clear and bold, and the washed colors are charming. Arthur Rackham's illustration is wonderful - enormously frame-worthy. There are no tears, folds, creases, or marks.

Measures 6.125" x 8.25" (15.6x21 cm) and shows a gentle all-over tanning. Perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage. A wonderful image to frame and gift for the new baby's room or your young reader's corner.

You are purchasing an original 1937 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
