These are pages from a late 1930s paint book. The 128 pages appear to be drawn by several illustrators, which was not usual in these very old coloring books. I think these Mother Goose pages have a unique and interesting style. Of course, I was also thinking they would make wonderful quilt blocks, but I might remove the borders and fill in the missing lines on some of the characters. A few of the pages were colored in, and I didn’t take the time to completely clean them up.
Update: Recently I discovered some line drawings by Fern Bisel Peat which are very similar in style to these — I think these uncredited illustrations may be hers.
