Robin Hood (1917)


Illustrated by Newell Convers (N C) Wyeth



On the left, we show detail from the illustrated cover for

Robin Hood (1917) - as illustrated by Wyeth and

published by David McKay (Philadelphia).










To the right, we show the illustrated

Title Page prepared by Wyeth.


Robin Hood (1917) was based on the classic medieval tale of Robin Hood, his band of followers and their adventures whilst

opposing the new Norman authorities - as represented by the Sheriff of Nottingham and his supporters.


For his illustrated version of this tale, Wyeth produced a wonderful suite of illustrations full of colour and detail that are

truly inspirational.

When presented on Greeting Cards, these images are prepared as tipped-on plates - in hommage to the hand-crafted approach

typical of prestige illustrated publications produced in the early decades of the 20th Century.


Hand-finishing is used to replicate the visual appearance of a tipped-on plate and the images are presented on Ivory card

stock with an accompanying envelope. We have left the cards blank so that you may write your own personal message.


In the meantime, enjoy perusing these wonderful images from Wyeth.
