Vintage Children's Book: Mother Goose Remembers illustrated by Clare Beaton, Textile Art in Vintage Children's Picture Books

I'm a big fan of Textile art in children's picture books. These type of illustrations comprise a small percentage of children's books, which makes them even more special. 

One artist who does this type of work is Clare Beaton. Beaton, who says she has always had a love of Folk Art, handstitches her illustrations. She works with felt and vintage buttons, trims and fabrics to create her textile art.

It seems redundant to say so, but make sure to click on the pictures so you can see them full size. I size the images larger so you can see all the detail and appreciate the details.


Awhile back I did a post back on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs illustrated by Textile artist Belinda Downes. This is one of my favorite illustrations in the book, love that curving row of beds!

Salley Mavor's unique talent and skill is immediately evident the first time you
open one of her many books. I enjoy looking at this book, it is a pleasure and
inspiration, just so well done.

Jeannie Baker's Polar is another book I blogged about with textile art illustrations. I think the sweet charm of this book would be especially appealing to little children. Her work has evolved and changed much since this book.

On another note, I haven't posted as much lately, due to working and personal matters. I hope to change this before too long and settle into a routine with more regular posting. So please bear with me, I'm not giving up the ship, just on a bit of a detour!
