I'm turning once again to my trusty Childcraft Library which is chock full of great vintage illustrations from many beloved illustrators of the past.
The combination of photograph and illustration is kitschy and sweet. I have to say as the mother of four that I don't recall many photographic moments like this lol. Illustration by Eloise Wilken and photo from Tell City Chair Company.
This one isn't too hard to guess. Pen and ink work by Garth Williams with his distinctive gentle animals and characters.
This one I wouldn't have guessed. My first thought was Feodor Rojankovsky as the illustrator, but it's not. Anyone care to guess?
I also wouldn't have been able to guess this one, though I love his work. The illustrator is Nicolas Mordvinoff.
Illustrator is Eraldo Carugati - anyone familiar with this artist?

The Little Land
When at home alone I sit,
And am very tired of it,
I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies--
To go sailing far way
To the pleasant Land of Play.
By Robert Louis Stevenson
