Dean's Gift Book of Prayers for Children- Illustrated by Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone

Posted by Picasa

Another amazing book illustrated by Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone for you.  They were twins - Janet drew the animals and Anne drew the period costumes.  They illustrated more than 100 books.  Before my 15-month old baby daughter was born, I used mod-podge to mount some pictures that I took out of my second copy of the Dean/Johnstones book of Mother Goose - I didn't post those pictures on that blog post at the time so I will post them here.  As you can see they are not actually on the wall of the nursery as they are supposed to be yet!!  I really must get around to doing that ...

  1. Wow, those illustrations are amazing. They have a neat glow to them.

  2. I own Dean's fairy tales and Dean's book of Nursery Rhymes- but this one I have not seen before. I can NOT get enough of their illustrations. TO DIE FOR!

  3. The hair! The hair! That curly hair, it's just so retro. Thanks for linking up to The Children's Bookshelf.

  4. Love this! I have five or six Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone books!
