Hiding in the Garden - Jessie Willcox Smith Greeting Card
Nestled among the charming blooms of gardener's garters, shepherd's purses, bachelor's buttons, lady's smocks, and hollyhocks, a delightful girl comes to life within the pages of The Flowers from Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses. This enchanting scene is exquisitely illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith in the timeless 1905 edition, adding visual magic to Stevenson's beloved collection of classic poems.

Jessie Willcox Smith (1863-1935), a cherished name at Laughing Elephant, wields a remarkable artistic legacy. Mentored by Howard Pyle, an illustrious influence, she emerged as a formidable woman artist in the Golden Age of Illustration, defying norms in a male-dominated realm—she was among the highest-paid illustrators of her time! Beyond canvas, she left her mark on nearly 200 Good Housekeeping magazine covers, while also gracing classic children's books and creating artistic ads for iconic brands like Ivory Soap and Kodak. Sensitivity to human experience defined her work, and her idealized images endure as motherhood and childhood archetypes.
