About our lady reader
Cherubs in her hair look on as she reads a book. The woman on the right accompanied a poem in one of Lake & Emerald’s first books. She has since become part of our identity. The original illustration graced a bookplate created by Harold Nelson for his sister, Fanny. It appeared in the Art Nouveau magazineThe Studio, Special Winter issue in 1898.
Are those cherubs whispering to her or just reading over her shoulder?
