Dorothy Wall was a New Zealand born author and illustrator of children’s fiction books. In 1933, Dorothy published her most famous book, Blinky Bill: The Quaint Little Australian. Her characters–animals dressed in trousers, dresses, aprons and bonnets–act out suburban domestic situations in a stylised bush land setting. The mischievous koala with his ‘boyish’ characteristics of adventurousness, impudence and curiosity have delighted children of many generations.

Product Description

Bookplate is a small print or decorative label placed into a book inside the front cover to indicate its owner. Bookplates typically bear a name, design, or crest that relates to or is requested by the owner of the book. Historical Bookplates are of great interest either as specimens of bygone decorative fashion or as personal relics of well-known people. Nowadays they are often of a value far greater than the book in which they are found affixed.

Includes 12 bookplates, 3 each of 4 designs.
