Scope and Content

Layout spreads for the revised paperback edition of 'Mrs Cockle's Cat', published by Viking Kestrel in 1987, which featured entirely new illustrations by Antony Maitland for the story. The layouts feature original pen and ink drawings positioned for printing, with blank spaces where the text was to be inserted. All but one of the spreads (AM/01/02/26) have a small printer's label attached, numbering the spreads in sequence and noting the reproduction size for each spread. Page numbers have been written onto the spreads themselves in ink, and several of the spreads have draft pencil and pen illustrations on the reverse.

The spreads are arranged according to the numerical sequence of the printer's labels, which roughly corresponds to the page order of the printed book.
