The Online Bookshelf - A Caldecott Sketchbook

A lovely little book from Project Gutenberg, full of sketches and watercolors by the famous English illustrator Randolph Caldecott, and including this one of a rooster decked out in Napoleonic uniform.

Beautiful! is this the Caldecott for whom the book award is named? I would hang these as art. Thanks for sharing, you always find the coolest stuff!


How apt! Roosters are little Napoleons anyway, especially banty roosters.

Yes, it's the same Caldecott. Love his color palette.
