Description

A pictorial bookplate in black ink for Gregory Worthington Webb. A young child is sitting on a book that has a sail and is in the ocean. The child has a toy letter cube in one hand and reaching for more that are in the water. The illustration has a thin, black line border in the shape of a square. On both sides of the illustration there are decorative calligraphic swirls and question marks. On both sides there is a sailboat but the right side has a bigger sailboat than the left side. Below the illustration the name "GREGORY WORTHINGTON WEBB" is spelled out with toy letter cubes that are on the beach shore.
