Item details

Mary A. Brooks was a British illustrator most noted for her illustrations for nursery books. She started out in the 1950s and even her later illustrations retained a charming 1960s quality to them. Predominately focussing on animals and children, her style is easily recognisable and timeless.

This illustration has been taken from an old children's book that was falling apart and already missing pages.

The first side depicts a blonde girl in a pretty white dress with a red flower pattern reading a book, whilst her pet spaniel looks over he shoulder and her teddy lays by her side. There is text above the image.

The second side shows a beautiful baby asleep with a baby doll dressed as a bunny.

This illustration would look make an absolutely adorable gift once framed or it could be used for decoupage, scrapbooking or other paper crafts.

Vintage pages give a very different look and feel to an art project than simply printing out an image, as they are printed on heavier paper and have an aged look.

Measurements: 210mm x 294mm (approx A4)
