Walter Crane’s The Baby’s Opera

We have been building a library of illustrated books by Arts and Crafts era designer Walter Crane for several years and are now finally at the point where we can start to release some of our Crane material in useful packages for contemporary designers who want to incorporate his unique aesthetic into their work.

Our first Crane release was The Baby’s Own Aesop and it was very well received. Now we are offering another book in the same series, The Baby’s Opera. It is a collection of classic childrens songs (including music and lyrics) with detailed illustrations, hand lettering and clever decorations on every page. Many of the designs and motifs can easily be extracted for use in your own designs.

Our presentation of the book follows the model of our other recent Walter Crane package. It includes a complete 60-page print-quality PDF facsimile of the book, plus high-resolution graphics of every page and illustration including the and covers. In addition there are emblems, borders, decorative elements and other resources which we have taken from the book and cleaned up and made ready to use for other purposes. All of this comes with a license allowing you to incorporate the material in your own designs and creations. The package is only $39 and you can order online and download the package immediately — but be warned, it’s a very large download.

We’re going to be following this package with other Crane packages, including a similar treatment of The Baby’s Bouquet which was a companion piece to The Baby’s Own Aesop and The Baby’s Opera. We also have a collection of fonts based on Crane lettering in development, like our recently released Crane Gothic font and plan to release more Crane fonts in the future.

To see a sample of what is in this collection, try out the condensed PDF sampler which has lower resolution versions of selected images from the set. To purchase the whole package just order it online.
