Some truly wonderful illustrations from an old children's book I found in a pavement book sale on Holy Island (otherwise known as Lindisfarne Island) off the coast of Northumberland. The book is called 'A Book for a Nook', and has no date in it, but was gifted to a girl called Anne in 1942 by someone named Graham.

The illustrations appear to be by a Ruth Cobb, (Or Ruth Kupferman, as Google would have it), who is unfortunately no longer alive, but seems to have had quite a successful career, though she is hard to find on the internet.
