Brock has captured with pastel colors and realistic rendering the image of children from the English upper social class at the turn of the last century. Each print tells a story where no words are needed. The print definition and quality are typical of that time period, lacking much of the sharp clarity that is available today with offset printing but adds timeless charm to this beautiful image.
There is slight uniform yellowing of the paper around the actual image as well as some wear at the page edges in line with what you would expect of a print that is over 90 years old. The rough edge from the binding has been removed but that is the only "altering" that has taken place (the interior edge is trimmed). Prints are carefully mounted on mats to simplify framing after purchase and to protect the print during display/shipment. All mat materials are acid and lignin free, the actual print is not archival safe. The original book measured approximately 4-3/4 x 7” but the book plate is being sold custom matted to fit in an 8x10 standard frame.
