Sunday Postcard Art: Gibson Girls


I hadn't realized until I was looking for images for this theme on the Library of Congress website that in 1902 a design for Gibson Girl wallpaper designed by Mr. Gibson was published in Life. The caption underneath the image was: "Suitable for a bachelor apartment." This design forms the background for my digital collage, shown below. The central image is from The Graphics Fairy.
