A stunning and dramatic piece of book cover art. This bold, large, colored image would make a great image to use for notecards or other stationary. It would also make a great basis for a website design. Flowers surround a single bird in a design that could be made into a repeating design. Great for anyone looking for a dramatic tri-tone image with a red background that is reminiscent of an Oriental rug.
This drawing dates back to 1883 when it was included in the book A Box of Stories: Packed for Young Folks. The author was Horace Happyman who did not identify the illustrator.
