Sheilah Beckett's MIKADO pt. 1
I've meaning to post this for some time. I have a better copy of this book (these are slightly off-register in the color separation) but I cannot find it for the life of me. If it turns up I will swap these out and update.
These are circa 1940 and feature lively depictions of Gilbert & Sullivan's immortal characters. Of the three Savoy operas she illustrated (PINAFORE and GONDOLIERS being the other two) this one is my favorite. Enjoy. Click to see bigger.
