Vintage children’s book illustration are a passion of mine. The colors, layering, and textures are what usually pop out to me. With this book it was the cute, little, black girls on the cover…something I didn’t see much of in my books as a child.
I found this randomly in the library, and I loved the cover so much that I decided to scan and blog about the cover illustration. I love the details, the hair, clothes, faces, and especially the girls’ loafers. Adorable!
