In the sweet channel of her bosom dropp'd..'
Lovely monochrome illustration book plate, originally a 'pen and ink drawing', taken from a 1948 edition of Shakespeare's poem "Venus and Adonis". Although the prints were made in the 40's, they have an 'Art Deco' 'Beardsley' quality about them. Suitable for framing.
The print is single-sided (no text on the verso) and on medium-weight, cream paper. There is very light age-toning which enhances the paper, giving a rich appearance along with the intense black.
The size of the paper is 21 x 27 cm OR 8 x 11 ins, approximately. There is a wide margin around the print and beneath the picture is the quotation from above.
Your print will be placed inside a polythene bag, packed securely in a cardboard-backed envelope with extra card/paper, and posted via airmail if overseas. All prints, whether antique, vintage or modern should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight.
