Welcome to my blog! If you're looking in for the first time, items are posted in a haphazard way, but the Oz series is scattered throughout in chronological order. Do check back in - I always have an eye open for an Oz item, and as I find more I'll share them here!

Several of W. W. Denslow's cover designs for Rand McNally feature landscapes. An Arkansas Planter and The Waters of Caney Fork, both by Opie Reid, feature rustic Arts & Crafts homes tucked into bucolic settings. An Arkansas Planter is also illustrated by Denslow, in his earlier style - not as broadly comical. The more colorful cover of A Colonial Dame combines an elegant building glimpsed through trees, together with a coat of arms - another popular image for Denslow covers.
