We haven't really looked at any books recently have we? Not with the plates and the shop (speaking of which there are some new things in there right now) and all the epic thrifting keeping me busy. But rest assured, I'm still buying piles of them, and I keep finding them heaped up in every room in the house. We need more shelves.
So, here are a few beautiful images from books we're into right now.
The Little Green Steamroller From Tales of Magic and Make Believe, published by Rainbow Books, 1974.
Elephant and dog-riding children from Pear-Shaped Hill by Irving A Leitner, illustrated by Bernice Myers.
Arrows and exuberant colour from Gravity Is A Mystery by Franklin M Branley, illustrated by Don Madden, published by A and C Black Ltd, 1971.
All sweetness from Good Morning by Dick Bruna, published by Methuen, 1983. I just can't stop loving Dick Bruna.
Groovy patterns from Shape, published by MacDonald Educational, 1970.
I'm pretty crazy about this book right now, as you might imagine.
