But not dogs in corsets
I haven’t shared images from old periodicals in a long while, and I must confess the reason. As some of you know, I got really sick a while back. Part of that was due to new sinus problems. And you know what gets me pretty badly now? Mold. I have a hard time handling my dear old paper collections and even old patterns. Part of that is why I’ve decided to start the Resto-Vival patterns- handing new paper is much easier for me now that I’ve accumilated the sensitivity- so I’d like to get some of my treasured old patterns transferred over and shared. Ah, my, how the Lord has a sense of humour- let’s give the girl with the vintage patterns and magazines a sensitivity to them In any case, I’ve been needing to wear a face mask to help keep my reaction down when dealing with old paper, and finally got up the gumption to give it a try and scan in a few images. Seemed to work well!
Luckily these days our manner of dealing with bad dogs has changed, but the informal sketchy nature of these illustrations from a short story are rather pretty and fun with the orange accent color. They are by Reginald Birch.
Hope you’re having a lovely Wednesday!
