Remember the days of looking through the card catalogue at the library for that book you wanted? Those days are long gone, but I rescued this vintage card for a book on Jonah's misadventures with a whale and painted a whale on it.

This is an original painting on a one-of-a-kind 3 x 5 inch card. The whale is done in gouache. The whale's decorative halo is done with gold watercolor pigment.

Ships within 1-3 days of receipt of order in a stiff cardboard photo mailer.

These cards look wonderful displayed on bookshelves, mantels, end tables, desks, pinned to your bulletin board or set up with collections of books — especially vintage books. To see more of my hand-painted library cards, visit the “Library Card Catalog” section of my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/WingedWorld?section_id=11288915.
