Records in this series indicate that Blades was unsatisfied with the publication of <i>Jacques the Woodcutter</i>, so therefore purchased her rights to the artwork back from the publisher, and collaborated with author Kit Pearson to re-tell the story in <i>The Singing Basket</i>, published by Douglas & McIntyre in 1990.
Series consists of research materials, contracts (including the contract for <i>Jacques the Woodcutter</i>), sketches, correspondence, reviews, royalty documents and artwork pertaining to the publication of <i>The Singing Basket</i>. Note that the final artwork for <i>The Singing Basket</i>, is also largely the final artwork for <i>Jacques the Woodcutter</i>. The artwork has been annotated by the creator to indicate which paintings were used in which publication.
