Please join me on Sundays for vintage and antique illustrations from my story books. I am always discovering illustrations I never knew existed. This journey has led to looking for information about the illustrators and their work. I am often surprised how little information exists. Below is a delightful illustration by Bonnibel Butler. Click on the link to download a zip file. The image is from the book page in actual size at 300ppi. These are in tiff format so image information is not lost.
This illustration is from the book Let’s Pretend, published in 1914 by Volland. Bonnibel Butler illustrated several books I am aware of. The list is below:
- A Book of Delights
- Holland Stories
- Favorite Mother Goose
- The Baby’s Record of Mental and Physical Growth
I hope you enjoy the illustration. Please feel free to add any information you have on Bonnibel Butler in the comment section.
