by Margaret Hayes, Charles E. Graham Co
circa 1920, Printed by FMN Publishing
Ms. Hayes art style looks familiar as she is the sister of famed Grace Drayton of Dolly Dingle (and Campbell's Soup) fame. Their styles are similar, and Ms. Hayes enjoyed her own fame in children's illustration and of course paper dolls, which appeared as magazine art, in books, and die cut paper dolls in sets.
No date is printed on the book, and none in Mary Young's reference books either. We have seen magazine work by Hayes in the mid teens to early 20s, so we guess this at 1920- more or less.
This book is square, and quite close to the original printing size. The six inside pages and two covers are all printed on 80# Archival CARDSTOCK. Finished stapled size 8.5" x 8.5". Stored in Mylar seal-top bag.
