x-posted to storybookland & told_tales & laceandflora (SORRY if you're seeing this more than ..2x!)Illustration by one of the Johnstone sisters, Anne Grahame. Unfortunately there's only one mermaid page and they refused to be friendly, but I decided to post it anyway..You can take a look at all of the illustrations @ my journal HERE.
Those are fantastic! I guess I'm hunting down the book now... :-)
