Vintage chicken drawing of white cochins. These white chickens are quite large and originally came from China. The Americans bred them extensively and created breeds that now have feathers on their legs. The two birds in this chicken drawing do not have feathered feet. Originally, white cochins were pure white with red combs and ears and yellow legs.
Can you just imagine how much work went into a publication from 1882 the size of Hill’s Album of Biography and Art? Thomas E. Hill included illustrations and page decorations on virtually every page. Over 200 of them are now showcased here on Reusable Art and will hopefully make their way to many new projects and explorations in creativity.
