Overview

This treasury of nearly 400 royalty-free reproductions of charming Victorian chromolithographs recalls the innocence and sentimentality of a bygone era. Compiled from a variety of authentic 19th-century sources, these evocative, idealized motifs focus on such themes as holidays, love, and friendship. Delightful illustrations, presented in numerous sizes and shapes, include nostalgic views of Santa Claus, horse-drawn sleighs, holly, floral wreaths and bouquets, clasped hands, doves, cherubs, exotic birds, lovable dogs and cats, splendidly colored butterflies, affectionate messages ("Forget me not," "Love guides me, " "Absent but ever dear") and , of course, children — hugging pets and each other, strolling, gazing wistfully, and playing musical instruments, plus scores of other eye-catching configurations.
Printed one side only, the images in this handy archive are ready for immediate use by graphic artists, decoupagers, designers, and craftspeople.
