Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone
I adore this type of illustration, the colours especially! you can tell the time taken to produce each individual image. I quite often look at the imagery from this old nursery rhyme book, I was first reminded of it, a while back when i looked at the work of Cheryl Taylor, she had an image which was reminiscent of these typical, fanciful designs from the twin sisters. This illustration was produced in the 1950's when the sisters were in their prime, beautiful!
