Under the Window: Pictures & Rhymes for Children was Kate Greenaway's first children's picture book, composed of her own verses and illustrations. The toy book, helped launch Greenaway's career as a children's book illustrator and author in the late 19th century as well as starting what became known as the "Greenaway vogue". Although Greenaway illustrated over 150 books, Under the Window is one of only two books that she wrote and illustrated. The book is considered to be one of the first earliest examples of a designer picture book, and its popularity caused it to be imitated.

About the Author:

Kate Greenaway (1846 1901) British author and artist Kate Greenaway grew up in North London and spent summers in the Nottinghamshire countryside. These happy times from her childhood were the foundation of many of her stories. Her illustrations portraying the idyllic landscape as a playground for children dressed in sumptuous Regency clothing offered a romanticized escape from the realities of the ever-encroaching industrialized world. In her costume designs, she combined the influences of her mother, an accomplished seamstress, with those of her father, a master engraver. She studied art in London where she developed a close relationship with printer Edmund Evans (1826 1905). Together they produced more than 150 books. Greenaway s popular illustrations inspired lines of ceramics, jewelry, fabrics, wallpaper, and children s clothing.
