Vintage Book Covers

November 11, 2013

Everyone seems to love a spot of vintage when it comes to book covers from the past. This little collection I’ve been gathering for a while now.  Inspired by the last Helen Borten post featuring her Halloween book, I’m now awaiting a copy of this Easter book illustrated by Ati Forberg to drop through my door. Let’s hope it’s as promising as the cover suggests.

Animals always create a second look when gracing a good cover.

A few snippets I couldn’t resist putting in here too from G. Porter, anyone know anymore about this artist ? and the wonderful John Burningham, thought it maybe nice to end on a few of his wonderful illustrations.
