Twice So Fair (1970), a fine press tribute to the Elizabethan poet and dramatist George Peele: “Most critics agree that his plays are dull, and their construction perfunctory . . . [but] scattered through that dull work are some of the most magic lyrics in the language.” Illustrated with color linocuts after drawings by English artist Barbara Jones, whose copy this was. #peele #georgepeele #twicesofair #elizabethan #poetry #lyrics #sonnets #renaissanceman #barbarajones #illustration #finepress #rarebooks #bookstagram

Another The Woodentops @bbc post - the original Spotty Dog puppet is in the @museumoflondon - designed by the indefatigable Barbara Jones in 1955 - he appears to have a strong similarity to Staffordshire china- reflecting Jones’ interest in folk art. 🐶

Having great fun researching Barbara Jones’ designs for The Woodentops, a TV series which first aired on the @bbc in 1955. It featured puppets Jenny & Willy Woodentop (twins) and their farm family, including Spotty Dog, who is now in the collection @museumoflondon - ‘the very biggest spotty dog you did ever see’. #femaleartist #spottydog #woodentops #colouringbook #barbarajones #television #puppets #watchwithmother #1955 #illustration #childrensbookillustration
