Songs From Alice, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Charles Folkard, Part 2

Here is part 2 of Songs From Alice with illustrations by Charles Folkard. The back of my book states that these illustrations were originally published in 1921. After that they were stored in a cellar of the publisher and forgotten until they were rediscovered 50 years later. Pity they sat for so long, but good that they were
eventually found.











Charles James Folkard (1878-1963) was an English illustrator from London who worked as a conjurer before becoming a children's book illustrator. He is well known for his work on The Arabian Nights, Grimms' Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables and Pinocchio. Folkard also created Teddy Tail, a popular cartoon character that ran in the newspaper for decades. To read more about Charles Folkard, click here or here. To see more of Folkard's work, click here.
