The Illustration Gallery in Newport wouldn't allow pictures inside but they had a nice bookstore.
I picked up this facsimile edition of The Knave of Hearts. Its a beautifully illustrated Maxfield Parrish book from the mid twenties, the last book he illustrated and the original printing goes for a big chunk of change. There were a couple of originals in the gallery from this book and I have the images from it in other books but this was a very nice, oversized and nicely printed book I had to pick it up. And now I can read the story.
