Picked this little gem up in a charity shop recently. Artwork is by Harry Hargreaves who during his long career also produced a successful cartoon strip called 'Hayseeds' which ran for several years in one of the English national papers. This book is all about birds in fact one little character in particular, a number of these little cartoons also appeared in the famous publication called 'Punch'.
Harry's works is brilliant, done with either a dip pen and ink or brush and ink probably a combination of both.
The linework is alive and the draughtsmanship is excellent. Good old traditional materials and the artist hand is evident...you just can't beat it!
