The Chatterbox











The Chatterbox was a periodical published "for older children" in London from the mid 1870's to the 1940's. These illustrations accompanied stories on history, scientific theory, adventure, and religion. It is nice to be reminded of a pre-photography era when illustrators had so much power in the mind of readers. These illustrations to me are at once awkward, alluring and funny.
