Childhood Illustrated, Circa 1910



While working on one of a series of large collages that I plan to sell, I was digging through a box of large, flea market-bought items to edit and clip down into manageable individual pieces.  In doing so, I was reminded of this rather damaged, but still amazingly beautiful item that I snagged about four years ago:  A 1910s children's book that was used for both coloring and story-telling.  I'm very glad I rescued it from the pile on the ground beneath a folding table in that outdoor flea market in Saylorsburg, PA.
