Paper Animals

I'm fascinated by these splayed animal figures I came across yesterday while clipping collage imagery. The bizarre silhouetted animal patterns are from a 1914 volume of amateur handicrafts for children. Thought you might enjoy them too.


  1. these are fantastic imagery
    Love that they are so specific with the pug! oh they are so wonderful.
    My heart swoons over the cat.

    Hey side note. I used one of your blocks in my first treasury I created last night. I had so much fun I had never attempted to do a collage of favorite things before.
    Hope you can check it out.

  2. Swoon here! These are just wonderful - thank you for sharing!!!
