Love this


I love this Book Plate - it is from a Children's Encyclopedia of the 1940's or 50's and is a riot of colour! It's entitled 'Marvellous Colours of the Sea' - and shows a whole host of Exotic Fish in glorious shades of Pink, Orange, Green, Yellow and Purple.

The text underneath reads: 'Very few of the fishes in these pages have popular names, and the long Latin names, intelligible to only a few people, are not given. The fishes are chosen as among the best examples of colour in the sea...'

I have over printed it with my Vintage Key Linocut in Rich Blue (the colour of the sea)

There is a matching one to this in my other listings.

Mounted on Quality Cream Mountboard Ready to frame - A4 size.

Worldwide Shipping.


Vintage illustration and book plates are a love of mine, the drawing and the clarity of colour fascinate me, instead of hiding their beauty in a book why not reuse them?
