vintage postcard of Holyrood, with collaged elements
I'm still cutting and pasting in the studio, but I've also been scanning illustrations from a children's book I bought at my favorite consignment shop for about the same money as a small vanilla latte. The book is entitled Young Folks Jungle Stories, Aunt Virginia Series, published by Hurst and Company in New York, about 1903. The cover, though damaged, features a rhino with a bloody tiger speared on its horn, not the sort of thing children's books feature today. The binding is completely destroyed, the paper yellowed and crumbling, but the illustrations are delightful. I just have to find a way to store them in such a way they don't crumble even more until I can find a way to use them. I plan to post a few more in the next days, and if you want to use them, feel free.
