Children’s Book Illustration Postcards: Part I

For more than two years–122 weeks to be exact–I participated in a weekly children’s book illustration (CBI) swap hosted by Marjan, a dedicated swapper from the Netherlands.  Yes–Marjan hosted the swap every week for more than two years! That is quite a commitment, but, as expected,  Marjan eventually ended the swaps.  Her last CBI swap was hosted December 2015 and with her “blessing,” I’ve decided to continue the swaps.  Before I begin the next season of the swaps, I thought I’d share with my blog audience the 125+ cards I received from June 16, 2013- January 4, 2016.

Since I can’t blog each postcard individually, I’m sharing the postcards in five parts in the order the postcards were received. The illustrators are from various parts of the world, including the Netherlands, Finland, Austria, England, and the United States.  Hopefully, you’ll find some favorites from  your childhood.  For a closer look or for a little information on each card, click its image. Enjoy the sweetness!
