Decades ago, when I purchased these two stand-up nursery rhyme pop-ups, they were already old. The copyright says 1953. Geraldine Clyne was the illustrator and I love the old- fashioned fifties look. What I also find so appealing , is the way the titles are part of the total style. The outlined yellow and red letters of â€œMary’s Lambâ€ go so well with the rest of the illustration. And, â€œThere was an old Woman.â€ done in script, and partially outlined, completes that composition. There is a history of these moveable books by several writers and illustrators from New York- here and here.
