INSIDE GREETING: Where do you come from baby dear? Out of the everywhere into the here.
Illustration by Frances Hook (1935?_1983) Frances Hook was hired by Northern Paper Company to do illustrations that evoked softness, for use in their advertising campaign for toilet tissue. From early in her career, Hook favored both the subjects and medium which became her hallmark children captured in soft pastels. This portrait of an enchanting baby girl comes from a mid-century advertisement. We often, when looking at our archives, marvel with regret at the near complete dominance of photography in contemporary advertisement.
Our blank notecards are custom printed at our location in Seattle, WA. They come bagged with an envelope. We love illustration art from old children's books and early, printed ephemera. These cards reflect this interest in bringing delightful art back to life.
