Raggedy Ann and Andy's creator, Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938), has been popular from his first book (1918) about this world of lovable dolls until today. This is because of his genius at picturing toys who are, at one and the same time, appealing and yet living beings with feelings, aspirations and original thoughts. He was, additionally, a superb artist whose balanced and beautifully colored pictures continue to please us.
These prints are created by a process named after a French word for 'spray'. The inks used in this process have a much higher resistance to fading than lithographic printing inks, which makes this kind of printing particularly suitable for prints being used in wall decor.
Our prints are made at our location in Seattle, WA. They have a thick, white backing board and are sealed in clear bags. Each is suitable for framing at 11 inches x 14 inches or can be used as is for wall display. Our goal is to bring back to life these wonderful illustrations from old-fashioned, books for children and from early advertising art.
