About This Item

This is a large unbound folio 17 x 11" containing six full sized full color illustrations by the author. Her foreword says" The six costumes here reproduced were included among a collection of thirty or more such costumes worn by Palestinian Arab girls at a pageant in Beirut organised by the Women's Auxiliary of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees to raise funds for Arab refugee charities. . . ." The six large loose plates are lithographed in amazing bright color with a high level of detail, and are very striking. Each has a reproduced signature of the artist. The right margin of the portfolio has a paragraph of description of each costume. This was printed in England. The prints do not have tissue guards, and there is a bit of waviness at the bottom edge, but all are clean and undamaged. The portfolio has some wear and a small tear at the top but it has guarded the prints well. They would frame beautifully. Stunning colors, stunning costumes, rare publication.
