In Powder and Crinoline by Kay Nielsen

Each was Delicious by Kay Nielsen


Hello and welcome to Vintage Book Illustrations.

This blog is a collection of discoveries and thoughts (and even some interesting information!) about the Golden Age of Illustration, botanical prints, magazine art, architecture, arts and crafts, design and pretty much anything else arty that gets me going.

Between my ramblings you will find artwork varying from beautiful to thought-provoking to just plain weird. Hopefully you will find an artist or print that interests, inspires or amazes you, or better still, makes you smile.

You will also notice links to my Zazzle store and unabashed encouragement to buy my products. Please do take a look or bookmark me for the next time you need a birthday card, a baby blanket or a poster of faeries! (other products are available).

Thank you very much for your visit.

p.s. This blog is an appreciation of art and does not represent any particular religious affiliation, racism or sympathy with any party in any war past or present. So there.
