Two lots’ worth of printing blocks (here and here; one group pictured at left) used for Marigold Garden, ca. 1885-1905, manifest the physical aspects of making Greenaway's books and might hold particular significance considering her father’s line of the work. According to Bonhams, the publisher used chromoxylography, an inexpensive color-printing technique widely used at the time.
Another fun find is a booksellers’ bundle of 50 copies of an 1884 almanac with color illustrations by Greenaway, most as new as the day they were issued and still in brown paper packaging, estimated at £300-500 ($400-670). Another such lot contains 106 copies of Greenaway’s Alphabet, ca. 1885.
An album of original drawings, mostly by Greenaway, of children, flowers, and fruits, last seen at auction in 1990, is one of the higher-priced pieces at £6,000-10,000 ($8,000-13,400).
