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.
