Yesterday I bought “The Water Babies” By Charles Kingsley, illustrated by Anne Grahame Johnstone, from my local Vinnies op shop. The illustrations are so gorgeous. I love the beautiful detail and delicate lines. I had to share their work with you. Janet and Anne are twin sisters, born in Britain in 1928. Read more about them here.
While looking for images to share with you, this one, below, caught my eye. As I studied it closer I realised I actually used to have this EXACT picture!!! An A4 framed foil print of Mole proposing to Thumbelina. So nostalgic. I loved remember loving it so much, especially because it was shiny! I wonder where it is now. Although I have no doubt it’s probably up in my mums attic in a box somewhere, waiting for me to return to England to find it.
