( story time )

February 23, 2011

bumped into these beautiful scans
of an old children's book. 

simply stunning.
and clever too.

 remember how we all looked forward to story time?
perhaps we should find a way to recapture that as adults too.

{ from golden gems, who loves old books & illustrations too. }

3 notes:

  1. these remind me of Charley Harper illustrations!

  2. @purl i do love charley harper. i sprung for this book { http://www.amazon.com/Charley-Harper-Illustrated-Todd-Oldham/dp/1934429376/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298486868&sr=8-1 } it has every page the $200 version does, but in a slightly smaller format. (and it's not a small book!) so worth it.
