Meanwhile the horrible red spider

had tied Milly neatly up into a ball, and the poor girl was making frantic cries for help.

  1. Hello. Have you come across any books illustrated by Eloise Wilkins? I am not sure if they are what you consider vintage. Beautiful illustrations. She is my favorite.

    Hello Donna,

    I did have a couple of books illustrated by Eloise Wilkins – I think one was children’s prayers and the other was the Christmas story. I’ve not seen anything illustrated by her recently but from memory the illustrations were lovely.

    It’s difficult to know how to describe the books I like but vintage sort of fits the bill. I really like more or less anything with pretty illustrations from around 1880 to 1980 but having said that I also like a lot of new illustrators.
