Even though it could make me look like a Frances Brundage illustration. I'd be willing to take the risk!
Even though her name be unfamiliar, you will be familiar with her work. This Victorian illustrator had a career spanning over 65 years and over 200 books. Even in her late 60's she produced up to 20 books a year! Her wide-eyed Victorian children epitomized fin-de-siecle Americana and graced all household goods, from flue-covers to calendars and endless greetings cards and her work today is highly collectable.
