Thanksgiving Silhouettes

From the Children’s Friend of sixty years ago —



  1. Oh, wow. This is beautiful. I love everything about it — the simplicity of the images, the meaningful mirror images, the borders, the color. It’s really eye-catching, while at the same time profound.

    Were these two side-by-side images? Or a front/back cover presentation? And were the originals full page in size? I’d really love to see these available for reproduction sometime, somehow.

  2. I’m thinking of framing them, too — with their being two color like this, even a scan could be cleaned up to printable quality.

    IIRC, these appeared on facing pages and were considerably less than full-page size — maybe a third or less of the page. There was no text associated with them, either; it was like they were fillers, if you can believe that. I thought they were beautiful.

  3. Awww. I love stuff like this. You need to start a Keepa store : )

  4. Hmmm — anybody want to advise me on how to do that? (Contact me at AEParshall at aol dot com, rather than on-blog. Thanks.)
