"Blessed be childhood, which brings down something of heaven into the midst of our rough earthliness." -Henri Frederic Amiel Up until 50 years ago most babies and toddler boys were allowed to keep their hair in curls and were dressed in the same basic clothing as little girls. This cute little person in his dress and mop of curls is, in fact, a little guy.I found a delightful ancient children's picture book at a little English Church jumble sale a long long time ago, it's back cover gone missing long before it ever saw my hands. The book was called 'Little Merry Makers' and as many times as I've tried to find it listed or mentioned anywhere, alas... I can't.The book was printed in several different colors of inks. This gorgeous engraving is printed in soft silvery green and it measures 6.5" x 9" overall. He's evenly tanned and extremely fragile. As carefully as he's been treated these past 130 years, he's has both of his right corners broken off to about 1/4." No biggie once he's matted and framedFramed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these sweet old children's book prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are to show how this might look when it's framed. Your print will come to you unmatted and unframed.)Surrender Dorothy offers an over-the-top array of unusual frame-worthy vintage and antique prints, maps, engravings, photos, charts and illustrations of all descriptions to adorn every room in your happy home.
