Vintage Beach Art “Paper Nautilus” Octopus Drawing
Now that summer is officially here, I took yesterday and today to scan a whole bunch of new art from my vintage ephemera collection. I have quite a few things that have been sitting around for
weeks months and I needed to get some new summery material to work with. This particular drawing is one of my favorites and I couldn’t wait to get it posted. This is a “Paper Nautilus”, which is technically not in the nautilus family but is actually a species of octopus. This SO needs to go onto a pillow on my couch this summer! Another thing I wouldn’t mind doing is making an iron-on onto some cool natural fabric and making a cool bag. Dang, that could be cute!
And just in case you’re curious, this illustration comes from a 1912 set of encyclopedias called “The New Practical Reference Library”.
