Peter and Wendy Kroma Paket 1923

Peter and Wendy Kroma Paket 1923
Back in the 1920′s it was common to walk into a toy shop and find Peter Pan themed board games, children’s handkerchiefs, card games, and, my favorite; watercolor and/or crayon sets and booklets. One of the most unusual (that is, after last week’s blog featuring Margaret W. Tarrant postcards) is this 1923 pack of black and white illustrations issued by the American Crayon Company. The envelope features a color Alice Woodward scene from the book, The Story of Peter Pan , a retelling of the stage version of Peter Pan by Daniel O’Connor. The author, who received permission from J.M. Barrie to publish a synopsis-like novella of the play, saw this work published in one form or another from 1907 to the mid fifties. In addition to his book with Woodward’s illustrations, O’Connor’s text was used in The Peter Pan Keepsake, a souvenir theatre programme (as it was

The Kennel Scene from the Peter Pan Kroma Paket

published in England) which also featured photographs from the 1904-1906 London productions of the play as well as a portrait of the American Peter, Maude Adams. While O’Connor lacks the charm of Barrie’s own 1911 retelling of his play, the illustrations and/or photos are worth the price of owning his books. In particular, the 1907 publication, with Woodwood’s colorful and whimsical tipped in plates, is printed on beautiful hand-made paper making me feel a bit chagrined that her work never accompanied the real thing–Barrie’s text. Here is

an advertisement for that book. In later years the paper would be cheaper and the illustrations  would not be tipped in. In addition to the Peter and Wendy Kroma Paket, I am including a card that a child would have colored. In fact, he/she already started on this page (and no, despite my desire to do so, this is not my work). Also shown here is an example of Woodward’s work to inspire (or intimidate) the potential child artists. Later Peter Pan coloring books would include facsimiles of Lu Lu and Cathy Rigby as Peter as well as various Disney incarnations. Meanwhile, I hope that these examples above are worth a glance. Have a safe and happy week!

  1. This will depend on your antivirus software though and some may or may not be as sensitive compared to the others.
    Norton can scan a file containing a nasty virus, but unless that virus is already in the dictionary, it will notice nothing.

  2. If you would like enough performance to try out games and they are on the
    budget, it is possible to always select this one especially if you’re an NVIDIA fan. 6Ghz Western Digital 200 GB SATA Hard Disc Drive 4GB RAM DDR2 800 PC6400. Other reviewers have noted a little difference between your low CAS latency DDR2 as well as the standard DDR3 that supports.

  3. Through our group of tests at the, Sony VAIO NW35E the configuration
    price is pretty balanced configuration fully fulfill the entertainment
    needs in the general home users, and it is design can also be a big characteristic in the
    machine. In keeping with AMD tradition, the Radeon
    HD 6990 manages to eke out serious speed while sipping electricity.
    For some reason my system won’t tell you the Bios using the DVI connection because the primary video display but it works fine if I have a very VGA connected first.

  4. If you need enough performance to experience games and therefore are about the budget, you can always opt for
    this one particularly if you’re an NVIDIA fan. According for many years, the 3Dmark scores allow it’s users to “accurately assess the performance from the newest 3D graphics software technology on the most recent 3D hardware. With improved cooling as well as a relatively modest overclock under its belt, the Palit 4850 Sonic is ready to look at the benchmarks to town, inside a drama-free, linear, though satisfying way.
