Our ongoing acquisition of cool little illustrated books has included a lot of small chapbooks of illustrated stories from various sources. We've featured some by Katherine Cameron and other artists of the early 20th century before as mini-packages or as inclusions in samplers. We've just processed and are making available a new set based on Olive Allen's illustrations for an abridged edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales which features four of the most popular of the original stories, selected primarily for girls, including the stories of Europa, Persephone and Pandora. The illustrations are done in a very attractive watercolor style with vivid colors and a soft, idealized look. The set includes seven original illustrations (two each from Pandora and Persephone) and a uniquely decorated front cover design with lettering in a style very similar to our Reynard font. Olive Allen (Biller) was a little known, but very talented English/Canadian artist whose work has been archived in the special exhibits section at the rare books collection of the <a href="http://www.library.ubc.ca/spcoll/displays/OliveAllenBiller/home.htm">University of British Columbia</a> as the result of a family bequest. These illustrations are from her early career before she transitioned from illustration to mainly doing traditional watercolor paintings. The mini-collection includes high resolution versions of all of the illustrations, plus a PDF ebook of the illustration set. You can buy it and download it for the nominal price of just $5 from our ONLINE STORE
