I'm moving my favourite posts from the Cupboard to my new Tumblr The Illustrated Tumblr and will be closing the Cupboard as soon as I've taken the best bits. This site was fun for a while, but I do enjoy the more interactive features of running a Tumblr blog. I'll be adding my vintage finds and reblogging posts from original illustrators that frequent Tumblr. So, if you are interested in old and new illustrations please follow me there, my user name is @theslidingpanel . Hopefully I'll be more active and up to date, posting some fresh gems.
