A Child's Garden of Verses - Illustrated by Ruth Ruhman

 
 
 
 



Posted by PicasaI lovelovelove these illustrations by Ruth Ruhman. This book is one I salvaged from my grandmother's attic.  It is pretty beaten up - scribbled on, missing some pages, and the remaining pages are a bit loose.  I really like A Child's Garden of Verses and I would like to collect some more editions of it by different illustrators - I have my eye on the one by Gyo Fujikawa- I have quite a few of her books but not that one yet- and the one by the Provensens, for example.  I framed a page from this book that is so cute and reminds me of my daughters, and I also made a decoupage frame that included some pics from this book.

  2. I've had my eye out for this and the Provensen edition since Burgin blogged about them. You will love Gyo Fujikawa's - we have that one in our collection. Her Mother Goose was a lovely addition to our collection of nursery rhyme books, too.

  4. These are the first Ruth Ruhman illustrations I've seen - but I will be on the look out for more now. I love visiting your blog and finding new (to me) illustrators.
