I've painted Black Beauty onto a library card catalog card for Anna Sewell's classic “Black Beauty.” Black Beauty has been painted in many styles since the book was published in the 1800s, but I decided to do this painting in the style of Fritz Eichenberg because he's listed as the illustrator on this card. This is an authentic vintage card from 1979.

This original, hand-painted library card ships within 1-3 days of receipt of order in a clear archival sleeve tucked into a stiff cardboard photo mailer. The card measures 3 x 5 inches. The painting is done with gouache.

I also sell mini easels in my shop if you want a convenient way to display a card. Free shipping on second items from my shop.
