An original Folly Cove designers hand block printed textile, in the Up Country Meet pattern designed by Louise Kenyon, circa 1964, in black on tan colored cotton. This whimsical pattern depicts an array of antique automobiles, children and adults (including a few chauffeurs), walking, gardening, picnicking and playing, amongst a dense field of plants, trees and flowers, with an antique American house in the upper right hand corner. New museum quality framing. Archivally mounted (hand sewn), on an acid free linen matte, with custom white wash finished ash frame and UV-resistant glass. Image size: 13 1/4" x 18 1/2" The Folly Cove designers were founded in Gloucester, Massachusetts by Virginia Lee Burton, the celebrated children's book author and illustrator who wrote "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel," "The Little House" and "Mabel the Cable Car," among other classics, which have never gone out of print. After drawing a design which was then approved by a jury of Folly Cove Designers, linoleum blocks were hand carved and then hand printed using a giant Acorn press. The group achieved great success and sold their prints nationwide, but always preferred to stay small. Production of these textiles ceased in 1968 when Virginia Lee Burton died. Examples of their work are in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Cape Ann Museum, Gloucester, MA, among other museums and collections, public and private.
