Linton- Life in the Collections

William James Linton:

36) Coverdesign for Wind-Falls. Original preparatory drawing (pencil /watercolour).

N.d. / n. p. (probably Hamden/ Connecticut, ca. 1875)

The draft (11x 15 cm) was executed in the same size and on the same grey paper as the wrapper of the booklet.

The spiky lettering of this drawing, which is very similar to the character of the Famine cover, suggests that the undated Wind-falls publication was produced around the same time, in the mid seventies.
