1950's ORIGINAL CHILDREN'S BOOK FRONT COVER ART "THE TINY TOTS BOOK" ARTIST - The painting isn't signed but this was done by an British artist. The title page of the book has an artist credited, G.M. HOLT, and several of the full page color illustrations show an initial "V" at a bottom corner but I can not say if either was the artist for the front cover. TITLE - "THE TINY TOTS BOOK" front cover art for Birn Brothers Ltd. book No. 501. MEDIUM - WATERCOLOUR AND GOUACHE ON CARD. DATE - Undated, but probably mid 1950's or perhaps even late 1940's. The artwork measures 8" x 10 1/2". Also included is the slightly larger 8 1/4" x 10 7/8" Birn Brothers book (see 2nd scan). A lovely, bright almost luminous original watercolour and gouache painting that was used for the front cover of a circa 1950's Children's book entitled "THE TINY TOTS BOOK". The image of the two children, pink teddy bear and doll playing among the ABC building blocks is quite beautiful. As with all Original art, this is a unique piece and therefore QUITE SCARCE. CONDITION: There is some flaking in the red background paint, some minor old tape residue on rear blank back, o/w the painting in Very Good condition is ready to mat and frame! The accompanying book is in superb Mint condition. #006154 Price: $350.00 (Please e-mail to confirm availability and correct postage before ordering.). Bookseller Inventory # 006154
