Geo Pulman Pochoirs (White)

In addition to her book illustrations, Gladys Peto created many "pochoir" prints, which were produced by Geo Pulman & Sons Ltd.  The pochoir technique is created by using thin copper or zinc cut-out stencil guides on individual black outline prints which are then coloured by hand using watercolour paints.  Below is a selection of her prints with white backgrounds (they were also produced with black backgrounds).  Please forgive the poor quality photographs - it's very difficult to photograph framed prints!
