I’ve pulled out a few more of the lovely book illustrations I come across on the internet. The first few from a site on Etsy that sells books Elwood and Eloise, always worth a look for that vintage find.

    Fantastic! The beautiful covers and illustrations are part of the reasons I kept my nose in a book most of my childhood.
