Bye Baby Bunting Daddys Gone a Hunting 1950s Period Ephemera - Cherished Book Illustration

"Red at night,
Sailor's delight.
Red in the morning,
Sailors take warning."

I think this is such a dynamic illustration, with the waves of the sea and the young sailor taking head of the weather.

This came from a 1950's poetry book that had lost it's front cover and first few pages. But every piece that lasted the ages is precious.. Each page measures 8" wide and 10" tall.

The colors in each illustration are powdery and soft, yet richly toned, making these a perfect choice for decorating a child's room. Each piece has a mellowed coloring to the page, and there are random smudges and small dog-ears, and some roughness on that side that was cut from the binding. But generally, they are in good vintage shape and certainly worthy of framing. This piece will come to you plastic wrapped to cardboard to preserve it's integrity during shipping.

This is a wonderful opportunity to achieve a vintage look, either in decorating or in your next project.

As always, your shipping charge will be what the post office prints on the stamp for parcel post. If I quoted high, even on multi-item purchases, I will refund you the difference back to your PayPal account. If I quoted low- you've got a deal!
