Hark hark the dogs do bark
The beggars are coming to town
Some in rags and some in tags
And one in a velvet gown

An illustration for Dean’s Gift Book of Nursery Rhymes by Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. I adore this illustration - the design of the figures is wonderful and somehow menacing. The men are almost Labyrinth esque.
