Back to the days when illustrations (that began as paintings) had to be etched into steel plates and put in a printing press, along with the tiny pieces of steel type!

Another stunner, thanks Aud! This art nouveau illustration goes back a very long way.


The gift that keeps on giving, Audrey. ;-)


Thanks, Mike, lots of adults still act like children.

Thanks, Audslibrary, for Crane's apropos illustration. ~Gayle


It is from a collected work called Baby's First Aesop. . .so maybe that explains the childish stances and facial expressions. Thank YOU all for your comments - Bill, Mike, and Marina. I've a mind to print out a few of these, have them matted and hand out as gifts. . . . where needed?


Thanks for the tag, Mike. Nothing new about that, eh? Love the looks on their faces

This is great fun, Aud. Walter Crane's work is legendary. Thanks!


Thank you for Aesop's wise lesson. Marina.
