Friday’s Snapshot from the library

August 22, 2014

This week I looked at an alphabet book for adults … although the book not for adult use only it does have one or two images that we might not expect in a child’s book for instance there is ‘E’ for executioner and scantily clad ladies  and men looking like letters in the alphabet. Nonetheless it is a beautiful book ; my grandsons would enjoy it! I would like a copy but it is very expensive!  There are works by Annie Newnham, Eileen Clarke, Ben Sands, Wendy Darnell and others I had not heard of, but will look out for soon.

    As with other things in life these characters are back in ‘fashion’ (if they ever went away) see Helen Lang’s work for example

    Thank you for liking “My Trip to San Francisco.” I like to look at vintage books and vintage illustrations, and these were fun to see. Thanks for sharing them! 🙂
