These rather interesting images come from a book written in 1895 called "The Book of Gnomes by Fred Weatherly and illustrated by E. Stuart Hardy. Maybe someday, I'll find a copy of this book, but in the meantime, I'll have to make due with looking at these incredible images!
I love the small details in images like these, such as the insect band and the dancing frogs. I would love to get into the head of someone who thinks up things like this. How interesting that would be!
