Hello Adele,My name is Julie and I am in North Queensland, Australia.I have a HUGE collection of old and antique childrens books which I have been browsing through this afternoon.I've come upon a stunning Raphael Tuck book titled
'The Fairy Tale Book with illustrations by Jennie Harbour'.
What a joy it is despite only having the colour plate on the cover and a Frontispiece of Cinderella. It's part of The Golden Girt Series,and is absolutely PACKED with the most exquisite Black and White illustrations which in my opinion far surpass her coloured works.They are reminiscent of Aubrey Beardsly,Harry Clarke,Kay Nielsen,in their intensely fine line and dot detail.This doesn't surprise me at all as they are obviously from the same period!! How excited I was to find your site just now when googling Jennie and her works!! I shall definitely keep in touch by watching for further additions to your information,and am more than happy to share picture with you if they are of interest to you.

Keep smiling,my new friend-in-early-children's-art, Julie
