peter pan and wendy

i wanted to share a few of these amazing illustrations i was given for my birthday.
j's nan is an antiques dealer (we have her to thank for so many of our belongings) and she is always finding the most beautiful books and prints for me. despite the fact that this (first edition!) copy of peter pan and wendy had crumbled, she knew that i would love the illustrations and sent me the ones left in tact.

peter pan has always been one of my favourite stories, and these illustrations fit it perfectly, i adore them! now i'm on the hunt for the perfect frames...
