Illustrator Ruth Mary Hallock, A Child’s Garden of Verses

Last October I posted some 1928 American school reader illustrations by Ruth Mary Hallock in my blog here. Yesterday, while sorting through books I found some more of her illustrations in a much-loved 1946 edition of ‘A Child’s Garden of Verses’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. The original copyright was 1919. When I look at these beautiful pictures I feel like a happy child all over again, when everything was possible, even fairies.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!

    I also love this period of children illustrations. Jessie Wilcox Smith was one of my very favorite and Ruth Mary Hallock looks a lot like Jessie’s style. I cannot find anything on Ruth Mary Hillock to read about her? Do you have any information about her? The Red Rose Girls is a great book to read. Three women illustrators, one of which is Jessie Wilcox Smith, living together and how they were so successful despite men dominating the art world. I would love any information on Ruth Mary? Thanks for your lovely selection of pictures shared. Pat Clark
