These vintage school prints by Eileen Soper for Enid Blyton are beautiful and nostalgic, with soft colours and detailed portrayals of the natural world.
Number 14 - Moo-ooo-ooo!
This print depicts a a farm scene with cows and calves. A young girl is feeding two calves from a bucket whilst the others look on. It's number 19 in a series of Enid Blyton Nature Prints for schools that were available in the 1950's. Eileen Soper's signature is visable in the bottom right of the print. Some of these prints have slightly odd titles! This is because they were each linked to an Enid Blyton story that the teacher read to the class. The titles are taken from the stories.
There is a thick black border around the print and the condition within it is very good. The colours are bright and clear and there are no tears or creases.This print goes very well with the Feeding Lambs one which is in the shop, they look lovely framed up and displayed together.
