Friday’s Library Snapshot

August 9, 2013

These images come from Edmund Dulac’s picture-book for the French Red Cross.  

They are among 19 colour plates by Edmund Dulac and there a photograph of the artist bt E.O. Hoppe.

The book is a compilation of stories such as Cinderella, Sinbad the sailor and Three kings of the Orient each with a painting.  

The book was produced by Hodder and Stoughton for the Telegraph to raise money for French Red Cross … it is described as being a lovely expression of international brotherhood.  It is said to be the best of gift books created to raise money for relief during the First World War.
