Index: Tam O’Shanter

These are all of my posts on Nannie, the young witch in a “cutty sark” (short shirt) who features in Robert Burns’ “Tam O’Shanter” (1792). Individual posts follow index pages:

Nannie’s Pages
  • Burns’ Tam O’Shanter, 1792 (1855 illustrations)

  • Coloured Tam O’Shanter postcards
  • This post features the full set of six Faed engravings, reproduced in colour on postcards ca. 1910 in the Valentine Series of postcards. [SFW]

  • Tam O’Shanter Prattware Pot Lid, 1850
  • The photos in this post are of a stunningly beautiful colour-printed lid featuring the final scene—the bridge scene—in “Tam O’Shanter.” This object is a highlight of my sexy-witch collection. [SFW]

    1. Dear Sexy Witch,
      I am only sorry to say that just too recently have I become acquainted with your wonderful and well-researched blog. Being an illustrator and comic-book artist I have been working for a while on a project concerning Burn’s delightful encounter with Miss Cutty Sark herself. I leave to your esteemed consideration, though bowing, first and foremost, before the presence of Faed’s depiction, one of my early studies of Nanny:

      Do keep up the good work, in and out of the cauldron,

      yours,
