Wordless Wednesday was going to just be this page from an out of copyright journal article, Packard, A. S. The Dragon-Fly (August 1, 1867) The American Naturalist, Volume 1., which I thought was really cool. since I decided to switch to the Balance child theme for the Genesis framework for WordPress and thus had to say goodbye to my background of itty bitty blue dragon flies.
Children’s Book Illustration
But while looking for more images of dragon flies I found this wonderful illustration by Cecile Walton from Polish Fairy Tales. The book is a translation by Maude Ashurst Biggs of the work of Antoni Józef Gliński and is out of copyright. It is called, The Fairies Weave a Rug.
I love that the colors and patterns reflect a real Polish folk art pallet.
