Sarah Orne Jewett House

Strangers and Wayfarers

Sarah Orne Jewett dedicated Strangers and Wayfarers, 1890, to friend and book cover designer, Sarah Wyman Whitman:

TO S. W.

Painter of New England men and women

New England fields and shores


The design evokes a block print, and underscores the handcrafted, folk art feeling of Wyman’s work.
