Poster Picture Book to Color — Peter Mabie, 1934

Last year I started scanning and cleaning this cute book by one of my favorite illustrators, Peter Mabie. About half of the 96 pages were uncolored, requiring only a little work in Photoshop to clean up the darkened paper. The remaining pages were all colored/scribbled on by a child using a black crayon (the most difficult color to remove), and therefore take much more time to clean.

Of course, I see these pictures as designs for adorable quilt blocks or embroidery on children’s clothing. To find other illustrations by Peter Mabie, simply type “Mabie” in the search box, or click on the Children’s Books category above to browse my collection. Click any image for slideshow.
