I am bending one of my rules to only post things from our collection. When I saw this delightful children's book cover on the University of Florida digital collection I thought "Look it is a post mortem of a kitten!" or at least that is what the "stands to hold up dead people" crew on Pinterest would say. I of course  know that posing stands were only used to help LIVE people (or kittens) hold still.

A charming Victorian picture book that shows how posing stands were used to keep those who were alive still for their photo.

This is such a strikingly beautiful image!
