Good Morrow….This Sunday Moring

Book-Cover

I had forgotten I had this little book in my collection of old greeting cards. It is quite a little wonder.  I say little as it measures a minute 4″ x 4.5″ and has only 8 hand stitched pages.

As it was published around 1890 it is not surprising that it is showing its age.  Printed at their Fine Art works in Saxony by Raphael Tuck & Sons of London, it was sold both as a book but as a small birthday/friendship gift. The contents are simple verse with a matching illustration.

Another spread is perhaps appropriate for Spring as we approach the season of Blossom

I hope you can read the verse….the ink has started to fade and paper discolour. I have tried to enhance the images to make your view better and hope it works
