Gumnut Babies

May Gibbs is one of Australia’s best loved classic children’s book writers and artists. May’s deep love of the Australian bush was portrayed in her work, engendering in children her own love of nature. The Gumnut Babies, May’s classic book about Australian bush fairies, was first published in 1916 and was followed by many other Gumnut stories including her famous creations Snugglepot & Cuddlepie. When she died, May Gibbs bequeathed her works to Northcott Disability Services and Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Through her foresight, May Gibbs has helped thousands of Australian children with disabilities and their families.

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.
