I picked this antique book up a few weeks ago, just before my computer power supply bit the dust, 'The Hanging of the Crane' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Note the 'Illustrated' part on the cover.. that is my favorite bit! All of the tiny drawings that fill each page, telling the story of the poem. the poem itself is quite wonderful but being a visual person, I REALLY adore each small image best.
I have tons to share with you from this book, so here is a sampling to get you started...
Hope that wets your appetite!
