Overview

Rich in authentic period flavor, this exceptional sourcebook, with its appealing vignettes of old-fashioned youngsters, will add a nostalgic touch to any number of graphic projects. Over 850 engaging black-and-white illustrations, carefully chosen from rare sources, depict winsome moppets playing with toys, dolls, and pets; riding bicycles; playing tennis and baseball; reading, sleeping, and engaging in games with other children. They are shown with parents and teachers and in many other settings and situations.
Selected from The Royal Magazine, The Century Magazine, Harper's Young People, Ueber Land und Meer, Little Folks, Life, Our Young Folks, Child Life, Craftsman, and many other late-nineteenth-century books and periodicals, these old-fashioned, versatile illustrations will be invaluable to artists, illustrators, and designers in search of vintage royalty-free images. Collagists, découpeurs, and craft workers, as well, will find here a virtually inexhaustible supply of charming illustrations for their projects.
