As a special seasonal bonus, for Thanksgivin we’ve making available a collection of images based on The First Nantucket Tea Party by outstanding American book illustrator and decorator Walter Tittle, an artist most known for his seasonal works.
These images make an excellent companion to last year’s release of a package of illustrations for his Colonial Holdays which is a collection of accounts from primary sources of holiday observances in the American colonies before and after the Revolutionary War.
The collection includes more illustrations of colonial holiday scenes – centered around a story of thanksgiving in colonial New England – plus beautifully decorated full illuminated pages for each of the stories and a selection of decorative borders. Tittle’s style is detailed and his color use is sophisticated and the illuminated pages include beautiful lettering and decorations.
You can see samples of most of the art below. Just click on a thumbnail to bring up a larger size image. The package includes 23 images in high resolution, suitable for holiday projects. To get the full package for just $15, you can just ORDER ONLINE.
