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 42 - Silly Sammy And The Corn
This print depicts a mellow harvest scene with a horse-drawn baler and a man stacking stooks of wheat to dry. It's number 42 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.There are a number of countryside prints in this series that work well when displayed together. They are all gathered in the nature print section of the shop.
