And many many thanks to my fellow pinterest member Marlen Osman whose grandmother this book belonged to. Wishing the wonderful Offterdinger illustrations to find a wider audience, she emailed me and then sent me a file with these images and more which I’ll create posts from soon. Sarah.

I’ve never reblogged someone else’s entire post but these strawberry paintings are too wonderful to pick and choose. All of them painted by Joseph Decker who was born in Germany in 1853 but immigrated with his family to the United States at the age of 14 and painted here. Died in 1924.
