Victorian Clip Art Trifecta

 From left to right: Young Folks Picture Book for All Seasons, Daisy Chain Series, copyright 1898; Little Ones Bible Lands, copyright 1898; Wonder Book for Little Children, Christmas Tree Series, inscription 1913.

On some recent antiquing jaunts I was fortunate enough to come across some tattered but terrific Victorian era children's story books with the most gorgeous black and white prints for clip art and digital collage!

I'll be sharing the best images (and there are a lot of them) on my free clip art site, Vintage Catnip.

 The Mammoth Story Book, copyright 1899

On a separate shopping trip, I snagged The Mammoth Story Book . At 1 1/2 inches thick, each page is illustrated, sometimes several per page.

I am over the moon about these lucky finds, and I am so pleased to be able to share them with you!
