Book of Nonsense





Excellent illustrations by Gabriella Barouch, all for Edward Lear's Book of Nonsense (1846). I love the way she has interpreted the limericks, particularly the one with the Old Man:
There was an Old Man with a beard
Who said, "It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all build their nests in my beard!"

Fantastic. Prints are also available in her shop.
