Handkerchief Books

During the 1920s and 1930s, several 'handkerchief books' were produced depicting Gladys Peto's artwork.  These charming publications contained six square children's handkerchiefs made from Irish linen, and covered subjects such as schooltime, nursery rhymes and Alice in Wonderland.

Thank you for sharing those illustrations. I've been collecting Alice editions for years and never come across them. It's always good to find something I haven't seen before.
