Flora's Feast, A Masque of Flowers

"Walter Crane was a Victorian illustrator, designer, poet, teacher, Socialist, and painter whose advocacy of affordable colored picture books helped influence the look of nineteenth-century British children's literature." (from bookrags.com).

Look what we found in the LIFE archives...three of many images of Walter Crane's charming lithographs. We heartily approve of advocates of affordable books.
