Here is a beautiful 2-sided paper featuring two beautiful Kay Nielsen illustrations gleaned from a damaged a 1983 reference book on children's book illustrators.
Both illustrations were included in the 1914 volume, 'East of the Sun and West of the Moon - Old Tales from the North' and both were taken from the story, "The Three Princess in the Blue Mountain". Their captions read -
'As soon as they tugged at the rope, the Captain and the Lieutenant pulled up the Princesses, one after the other'
'No sooner had he whistled than he heard a whizzing and a whirring from all quarters, and such a large flock of birds swept down that they blackened all the field in which they settled'
Kay Rasmus Nielsen (Danish illustrator, 1886-1957) was popular in the early 20th century during the "Golden Age of Illustration", which lasted from when printing pioneers developed technology to the point that drawings and paintings could be reproduced with reasonable facility.
Nielsen is also known for his collaborations with Disney for whom he contributed many story sketches and illustrations, including his work on "Fantasia" ('Night on Bald Mountain').
The heavy, 2-sided paper measures 8.25" x 9.125" (18x23 cm), and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. Both images will be lovely framed - perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage. Perhaps you'll gift this framed for the new baby's room or for your young reader's corner.
You are purchasing an original 1983 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class Mail.
