On each page, a short poem and a large full coloured picture "Polly wants a cracker? Polly does of course,/Run and fetch it quick/Or she'll scream until she's hoarse." The publisher's trim on this book appears to be 3/16" too close on the top side, affecting the letters R and Y and also the red margin on the back, but not the interior pages. The felt gives a soft depth of colour and takes fine line very well. These rather rare, turn of the century felt books appear to have been produced in both muslin and felt.
