Delightful cards for sending a loved one a fillip or dashing off a light-hearted note: showcasing illustrations from the anarchic art and imagination of much-loved English author and artist Edward Lear (1812-88). Reproducing original illustrations from his ‘A Book of Nonsense’, c.1885 and 'Nonsense Botany, and Nonsense Alphabets', 1889, which popularised the artform of very silly limericks and imaginary plant forms. Illustrations include ‘The Perpendicular Purple Polly’, the ‘Young Lady of Ryde’, ‘Manypeeplia Upsidownia’ and ‘Tigerlilia Terribilis’. The original books are now a treasured part of the collection of the British Library.
