John Tenniel, Self Portrait, 1889


Children's Classics, Partial Set

When I was a little girl, one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me, was a series of hard-bound children's books. I remember my mother handing me a different book every so often, until the set was complete. They seemed so distinctive and important, with their hardbound, split-color formal covers, black lettering and gold trim.
