Description

Mary A. Brooks was a British illustrator most noted for her illustrations for nursery books. She started out in the 1950s and even her later illustrations retained a charming 1960s quality to them. Predominately focussing on animals and children, her style is easily recognisable and timeless.

This illustration has been taken from an old children's book that was falling apart and already missing pages.

The first side depicts a blonde girl in a pretty white dress with a red flower pattern reading a book, whilst her pet spaniel looks over he shoulder and her teddy lays by her side. There is text above the image.

The second side shows a beautiful baby asleep with a baby doll dressed as a bunny.

This illustration would look make an absolutely adorable gift once framed or it could be used for decoupage, scrapbooking or other paper crafts.

Vintage pages give a very different look and feel to an art project than simply printing out an image, as they are printed on heavier paper and have an aged look.

Measurements: 210mm x 294mm (approx A4)

This listing is for the actual page you see and not a copy.

Disney scrapbook pack lucky dip. 29 sheets scrap paper for album, junk journal, smash book, collage. Ephemera for card making and papercraft
Book Fairy responded

I am sorry you feel that way - especially as other people have bought the same item and been extremely happy. I welcome feedback and want all my customers to be happy with their purchases, as poor reviews can be extremely damaging. It would have been good to have been given the opportunity to improve your experience, as I am sure your constructive criticism would have been very helpful, but my attempts to contact you have been ignored. For future customers, it is worth noting that this pack has been changed since this review and instead of a broad spectrum of Disney characters, it now only contains Disney Princesses and heroines.
