The Clyde J. Newman lady illustration further below complements “The Fable of Why Essies Tall Friend Got the Fresh Air” in the book MORE FABLES by George Ade (Illustrated by Clyde J. Newman), published in 1900 and in the Public Domain.
The fable is an odd and humorous romantic tale about a young man named “Bert”, also known as “The Boy with the Dreamy Eyes“. Bert is employed at a “Furnishing Store” and is always on the look out for “Essie”, a young lady he fancies.
The picture below shows Essie standing outside the store, looking in the window, probably for Bert.
Anyway, in May 2010, the drawing appealed to me enough to tinker with it in photo-editing software. Here are some of the images derived by me [Patricia Spork] in my “Lady Night” series.
I release all “Lady Night” images to the Public Domain, so the graphics are free downloads. Right click on each image and “Save Image As” or Save Target As” to download and save on your computer.
