The Waddleton Chronology book of the month - November  2007



Blackie’s Children’s Annual was first published in 1904 and continued annually until 1939. Early editions were only printed in ‘Blackie’ chromolitho on matt paper but later publications included some full page, hors texte, colour plates printed in screened half tone cols on coated white paper.


Here are the ‘Blackie’ colour litho plates and some of the screened half tone colour plates, showing examples from many well known illustrators of the day. This book is in the Collection as 1936.62..
