Wee Willie Winkie

Created by the Illinois WPA Art Project to promote the use of libraries by children, this poster shows a child in pajamas running through town at night: 'Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town, upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown; rapping all the windows and, searching all the nooks to count the many children reading library books.' The poster was illustrated by Cleo Sara, c. 1940.

About Our Paper
We use mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas.

Paper Sizes
Paper sizes are in inches. If an image's dimensions don't exactly match the paper's dimensions there will be a wider margin on the narrowest side. The long edge on prints 34x47 and larger will vary depending on the dimensions of the photo and may be longer than the size listed.

All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching.
