Peacock Pie, A Book Of Rhymes

£19.99

Product description

"A few new-old rhymes are included in this edition of Peacock Pie. The embellishments in it (and it was his own chosen word) were made by Claude Lovat Fraser in 1912 -- the rhymes themselves were first printed in 1913. They are now reproduced in company for the first time, and a happiness indeed it is to see them together; not only for the sake of the vivid pictures themselves, and all they give, but because he himself delighted in making them. I can remember, indeed, as vividly as if it were yesterday, talking to him as he sat at his board with his brush and his bright inks, and watching them positively leap into life on the paper." --Walter De La Mare
