Candle-Lightin' Time

I am smitten by the design of this 1901 cover by Margaret Armstrong. Her interior art nouveau decorations accompany the African-American dialect poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar, the son of former slaves, who earned international acclaim as a poet.

Very nice. Reminds me of Cicely Mary Barker.
