    Hi Cate,
    What a beautiful poster, so in keeping with the arts of the 18th century, especially the colours and layering of images.

    Where did you find these games? Were there any games for girls, that encoded the societal expectations for them?

    It’s interesting to note the literacy skills expected of the people who would be assisting the 8 year old boys to play this game. Would their mothers be the ‘readers’ of the text or their nursery maids? If so, where were those females gaining their reading/writing knowledge from?

    Really a great poster, lots to think about.
