I scanned the illustrations from the beautiful Victorian scrapbook I bought in Round Top. You are welcome to download the image for your own use if you like. Double click to enlarge. Each one is amazing. A couple even strange. Enjoy!
Okay, what's up with the kid hanging from a wall? Is it some strange treatment for mumps? Or possible a Victorian version of a 'jumpy seat'? If you know please share.
When I started blogging I discovered a wonderful world where everyone shared their thoughts, ideas, & creativity. I believe we are all influenced by these images and incorporate them in our own art from time to time and I think that is one of the perks of belonging to this community. In keeping with that theme I encourage anyone to use my images without fear of reprisals, all I ask is that you give me a nod or a mention. As that wise old cricket Jiminy used to say, let your conscience be your guide.
