In a charity shop we recently found a copy of one of the most elegant Puffin Picture Books, A Child’s Alphabet by Grace Gabler, published in 1946. We thought we would share some of the beautiful artwork with you.
It has been difficult to find much information about the book, but apparently the artwork was drawn directly on the lithographic stones from which it was printed. We think these illustrations are charming, delightful and evoke a time that once was but sadly is no longer. Here is a link to share a downloadable pdf of the whole book.
