A charming original antique prints.  In this richly chromolithographed image, a young girl is perfectly at leisure, enjoying time for a relaxing read with her pet cat, though she is “so tired” and about to nod off.  This was probably issued as a subscription bonus, designed to appeal to the readers of The Independent, who might hang this print in a bedroom or sitting room.
