Chromolithographic cover for ‘Told in the Twilight’
M E Edwards
9¼ x 7 inches
This nursery book reprints several colour illustrations from other publications by Edwards. The cover, however, is entirely original, representing a combination of a pastoral and domestic scene. The treatment of the foliage is in the manner of Arts and Crafts, positioning the book in the eighties, when this style was at its most popular.
