A Book of Children’s Rhymes: illustrations

illustrations by Janet & Anne Grahame JohnstoneWhile in Baltimore last month, I went to Ellicott City, a little old mill town which is now is known for being quaint; antiques shops and cafes. I found (and bought) a children’s book from the 1970s, one which I quickly realized I’d had as a child. It’s one of the books that taught me how to draw (especially horses, but people, too). The gouache paintings therein, by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone, are fantastic. There are several more after the jump.illustrations by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone
