Item description

Margot Austin Vintage Nursery Rhyme Original 1944 Book Art Print DESCRIPTION seaside*collectibles is pleased you this softly colored image that are gently rendered in bright watercolors. These illustrations have an almost primitive style, reminiscent of early Americana art. It is by Margot Austin [b. 1918 - d. 1999] American. Author Illustrator of Children's books. This image is called: Little Bo-Peep Her illustrations have a halo of soft focus - they are dreamy and child-like - a perfect style for her many children's book publications. Salvaged from a 1944 first printing of a Platt Munk nursery rhyme publication of Austin's illustrations. The accompanying typeset nursery rhyme appears with the image as well as: Copr (copyright) The P. M. (Platt Munk) Co., Inc. is printed below the image. DETAILS This full color offset lithograph is printed on heavy pulp paper stock. Printing on the back. Age toning on the edges with finger smudges present. Corners bumped with veining (from page turning) and some page edge chipping. Rough sewn binding edge present. None of these points adversely effect the image which is brilliant and bright. The full page dimensions are 7.25 " inches x 8.50 " inches. * * BONUS * * This print also comes with an additional 1/3 page color offset lithograph by Austin from the same Mother Goose nursery rhyme publication. These wonderful images arrive carefully packaged unmatted - ready for framing and displayed. Austin's work is highly collectible and this wonderful 65 year old illustration is an original print, not reproduction. The series of illustrations that we have brought to you of her nursery rhymes were created in the early to mid 1940s is very different from her later works and it is interesting to see her artistic progression. Austin was born in Portland, Oregon and attended the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League in New York City. Among her works was a notable series about small animals in the church of Parson Pease-Porridge, beginning with E. P. Dutton's 1941 publication of ''Peter Churchmouse'' and continuing with ''Gabriel Churchkitten'' (1942) which was made into an animated film short in 1944. Other noted titles include ''Trumpet'' (1943), ''Poppet'' (1949) and ''Brave John Henry'' (1955). Austin also wrote and illustrated books for Jack and Jill magazine as well as Charles Scribner's Sons, E.P. Dutton, Rand McNally and the Platt Munk publishers.
