Jolly Jingles: Featured from Feller Family Collections

A subsection of The Feller Family Collection of printing blocks as they are being unpacked and cataloged.

This week at the Book Arts Studio we have continued to explore and find locations for some of the recent gift items donated by the Les Feller Family. Among the treasures are an early printed children's book published by the Donohue Company almost 100 years ago--and the blocks to print it!

"Jolly Jingles" — One of the many children’s books printed by the Donohue Company, this one issued in 1915, from the Feller Family Collection.
