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.
These 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, children's books and from early advertising art.
