Vintage illustrated cutouts

Sometimes I wish I did collage or altered art. I really wished it a few weeks ago when I found a huge lot of paper cutout illustrations from the 1930s done by Roger Vernam of cowboys, Native Americans, animals (wild and domestic) and farm life.

The antique dealer actually questioned me when I said I wanted the cardboard box full of this mishmash of paper added to my order. I at least saw the potential in them, even if I'm not able to do something with them myself. I've divided them up and listed them on Etsy. Here is a sampling.
