vintage illustrations ...... day 2



For the second day of the week long children's book illustration meme I have chosen another popular illustrator who will probably pop up again somewhere else this week. But how could she be resisted? Joan Walsh Anglund is just a dreamy illustrator. Such innocence and simplicity.

These pictures have been taken from A Child's Book of Old Nursery Rhymes and was published in 1974, the year I was born.



I would love to get this little illo printed up and framed in the kid's room.
