    Children's Traditional Hand-print Poem Heirloom Print

    If you are a fan of old style, whimsical pen & ink children’s book illustrations then you will love this print that I illustrated to go with the traditional Children's Handprint Poem that has been handed down for generations. The border is decorated with little vignettes of children doing all sorts of things that children do: from girls jumping gleefully on a bed, to boys making music with kitchen pots and pans, to a child jumping in mud puddles with his puppy and more!

    There are many versions of the traditional Children’s Handprint Poem. These poems have been used in myriad ways by many people, from schoolteachers to professional artists and craftspeople for years to remind us all of how quickly our children grow up.

    I created this print several years ago for my own children when they were young and for all my little nieces and nephews.
    I cherish the hand print I saved of each of my children on my print as do all those who have their own copy.
    Our children each recorded our two granddaughter’s little hand and footprints onto their own copies after they were born!

    These beautifully illustrated prints make great gifts to new parents and will be treasured for a lifetime once you record your child’s (or grandchild’s) hand-prints on them.
    *Included with the print are directions for correctly placing your child’s (children’s) hand-prints onto the space provided.
    You could even put your child’s (or children’s) photo in the appropriate space.

    *See photos for details and for an example of how the print was used to record our children’s hand-prints when they were little.

    Only a few of the original prints I had made are left, and the local printing press that made them for me exists no more, so when these few prints are gone I will not be able to make any more. I doubt if the kind of paper these are printed on even exists now. It is a porous paper with a wondrous texture that absorbs color beautifully. The printer chose it especially with its purpose for making hand prints in mind.

    The Children's Hand-print Poem Heirloom Print measures 16" inches x 20" inches and can be matted and framed in a standard 16" x 20" frame or larger.
    I will ship your limited edition print to you carefully sealed in a flat box via Priority Mail to ensure that you have your prints handled with the best possible care and delivered to you in a timely manner.
