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 22 - The Birds Go To School
This print depicts parent birds teaaching theitr young to find food. This print has kingfishers, thrushes and ducklings all learning by the river in spring. It's number 22 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 Where Shall We Nest? one which is in the shop, they look lovely framed up and displayed together.
