This is an actual whole page cut out from a vintage children's book, "Fairy Tales and Fables". The book, edited by Eve Morel and illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa, was printed in 1974, with a 1970 copyright, and was too damaged and worn to be sold intact.

This charming, colorful illustration depicts the classic fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin". It shows the title character teaching the miller's daughter to spin straw into gold with a spinning wheel.

Size: Page is approximately 8.25 x 11-7/8 inches.

Condition: Only light wear and light age-tanning. The reverse is text from the same story, with 2 black-and-white illustrations.

The noted American author-illustrator Gyo Fujikawa (1908-1998) created more than 50 books for children. She is considered to be "the earliest mainstream illustrator of picture books to include children of many races in her work, before it was politically correct to do so." [from Wikipedia]

This handsome page of vintage 1970s book illustration would look great framed.
