IF: Afterwards

November 10, 2010

. . . perhaps stamp collecting?

  4. Beautifully done! I love the old-fashioned style and the soft colors. They look like they could have come from the time period when the original was written!

  5. Thank you all! I had fun looking through my annotated Wind in the Willows to see how different illustrators have interpreted the characters. My favorites were Ernest H. Shepard and Arthur Rackham--but no surprise there!
