Anthropomorphic Flowers

These books are just a very few of the full text children's books available at
Digitalisierte historische Kinderb├╝cher
a German children's book digitization project.
Blumen-Marchen by Ernst Kreidolf

Flora's Feast by Walter Crane

Viola Tricolor by Franz von Pocci

There are also books by Kate Greenaway, Edmund Dulac and Hans Christian Andersen. This is one of my favorite collections.


  1. Very interesting, as always :-)

  2. That pansy artist is terrifying! He looks like he has sunk back in horror at whatever it is he has created.

    But otherwise - how lovely. I'm really fond of Edmund DuLac, too.



Comments make my day.
