Letter U

drop cap letter UThis is another of the charming fancy letter and drop cap images from the 1908 work Dream Blocks by Aileen Cleveland Higgins and illustrated by Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935). This one has a cute young child, dressed in red sitting on a stool in between the uprights of the Letter U. Just love the striped socks and little shoes – so much detail for such a little image used as page filler rather than to illustrate the story.
