The Enchanted Illustrated Letters From Sir Henry Thornhill (Kaka)
There is a new English site with the largest mass of illustrated correspondence in the world.
is a touching announcement of a grandfather’s unique fashion of creating a loving relationship with his grandchildren, who early last century, by a bend of fate, had moved across the universe to India, whilst he had fair retaliated from India to England to be intimate to his grandchildren.
This disunion from his grandchildren was a big sadness to Sir Henry.
He wanted so much to stay in touch, and he had always enjoyed portrayal and painting. As a issue teenager he had received education from his father, which included scarcely corral and ink drawings.
So, he signal to write and decorate cards and learning to each of his four grandchildren every week in what has been described as a truly unique and taking phrase of passion by a grandfather for his grandchildren.
One of Sir Henry’s original scholarship to his grandchildren is put on the site every week, and you can enjoy it by recital it yourself or hearing it scrutinize by Sir Henry’s immense grandson Charles.
You can further look at his cards with the adventures of Hathi and Mr Hare, and even send an original card with your retain dispatch to a loved one.
In fact, so melodious are his knowledge and cards that he has started to write new notebook learning each week on topical subjects and with a gently educational style, which attraction to offspring and adults alike.
When you visit the site, you commit spot that Sir Henry signed all the correspondence ‘Kaka? So why did Sir Henry sign the letters Kaka? Well, when his granddaughter Margaret was extraordinary young, she couldn't chatter grandpa, so instead she would natter Kaka. This name stuck, and from that moment, he always referred to himself as Kaka, and signed all of his scholarship and cards to his grandchildren with this nickname.
A Peter Pan like figure in pure life, Kaka seemed instinctively to surmise family and he used his vivid imagination to constantly amuse his grandchildren.
He introduced delightful moving characters led by the inseparable (if unlikely friends) Hathi the jolly elephant and Mr Hare.
Mr Hare is optimistic and athletic, whilst Hathi's catch spell 'nothing to it really' reflects his surprising success at activities and sports which elephants aptly shouldn't be capable of playing! They secure up to all sorts of adventures and are joined by Mughli Ji the fish who walks on his tail, the brightly coloured, system conscious, Cockiobolli birds, Mrs Stork, Captain Cormorant, Mr Frog and others.
Kaka never really grew up and he loved the appealing new genre of the ridiculous strip, so he used to send comics to his distant grandchildren.
However his daughter Madge, unlike Kaka, was a reasonably strict Victorian who sternly disapproved of comic strips and forbade Kaka from sending them to the grandchildren.
He was sharply disappointed, but had to gap until he dreamed up the thought of creating his posses laughable strips fair for the grandchildren.
He thought that this would be a immense means to amuse his distant grandchildren, and he disguised them from his daughter by abiding to master and send his weekly postcards, but with one critical difference.
Instead of each card depicting a absolute report of Hathi and Hare, he tight the motion over two, four and up to ten weeks, thereby truly creating his keep comic strips? Of course, the grandchildren loved following Hathi and Hare’s attempts at education to fly, or their sea trek in an upside down barrel; or Mr Hare feeling Hathi to dive.
And the prime slice is that their strict mother Madge never realised that he had invented his keep ridiculous strips!
Whilst he was sending the cards to hardly Ann and Elizabeth, the three-sided learning to the older Teddy and Margaret were stagnant being sent as well every week. To Teddy they were perfect of wonderful inventions such as the hedge hopping vehicle or the steam driven aeroplane.
These must hold been so exciting to the progeny guy Teddy and Kaka must posses scan and researched widely to find them . It is beguiling to run a ‘whatever happened to these?series , where the success or error of these inventions is discovered.
The exotic car with a propeller on the front, for example, does passive exist.
In appendage to it being spotted in a petrol level in Hampshire, England a few years ago, it was an magnetism at the annual Festival of Speed at Goodwood’s vintage cars weekend in England a duo of years back.
To Margaret the knowledge contained what Kaka considered to be fresh suited to girls.
Wildlife and aspect caper out of the pages and Kaka’s heart of beastly life brings a distant and exotic universe to life in a magical fashion.
No opportunity was missed to amuse and electrify the interest of his sweetheart grandchildren, so that even the envelopes were covered in drawings of rabbits, elephants and wonderful scenery.
Indeed often the sermon was neatly included to be allocation of the picture, for example, on a signpost, board or trivial envelope carried in the beak of a brief heron!
In the mid 1980’s, a story was admitted entitled ‘Pictures in the Post? with a foreword by Princess Anne, The Princess Royal. This romance went to digit 6 in the finest sellers record in the UK in the Christmas of 1986 and was described in a public newspaper as Princess Anne’s book choice for Christmas that year. Following the publication of Pictures in the Post a major children’s calendar in the UK: - Blue Peter featured the information and to the amazement of everyone relatives started to contact the plan to talk that they too had illustrated erudition from Kaka. In all eight connections where discovered who had enlightenment and illustrated envelopes, which had all been kept.
Blue Peter covered this astonishing gestation in a more aspect and yet another person came forward, but we missing impression before we managed to see their letters.
All of the 200 newly discovered letters, cards and envelopes were displayed on the timetable and we wonder how many other relatives retain knowledge from Sir Henry.
We do comprehend that there are more, because one of the kin who came brazen with the erudition to her and her monk in the 1930’s, could remember sitting on Sir Henry’s loop in his accommodation on Lake Geneva, when he wrote to sick progeny whom he had heard about.
We imagine that Kaka would have loved the internet and email, and we hope that he would have approved of, and shared in, our pleasure in enabling heirs everywhere around the system to slice in the experience of acceptance a card or dispatch from Kaka.
So visit and enjoy this unique, touching and delightful interval of love.
You can even write to Sir Henry and ask for one of his new, weekly, magazine knowledge to be dedicated to your grandchild/children.
Details are on the site.
