Footnotes

  • ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR OF CINDERELLA, used as the colour frontispiece to the De Luxe edition of Cinderella. Retold by C.S. Evans (Heinemann, 1919). The central image of Cinderella is surrounded by an elaborate border of mice, mysterious creatures and plants by Rackham. In the lower border is a pencil annotation by Rackham "Note to Reproducer. I think there is no need to use colours that are either very bright or very dense. You will see that the solid blacks are rather brown & not very strong. The variety and quality of the quiet buffs & grays are more important than the bright spots".
