Ah, these are fantastic. The rabbit's "quacky" shadow is especially choice.http://aqua-velvet.com
I concur that the rabbit's "quacky" shadow is great, but for me that "Chicken World" cover is the truly extraordinary contribution. It could grace the wall of any modern art museum. I'm going to try to track the book down.
$95 for you David.
Fantastic! Yes "Chicken world" and the quacky rabbit are incredible but "Tit" is great too and the mouse more familiar but so charming, I'm going to look at the set...
wonderful selection! blogged at http://theanimalarium.blogspot.com/2009/08/sunday-safari.html
Hi!Your "Bibliodyssey" are in my Blog Day list.Greetings from Brazil,Suzana
These are fabulous! I too liked the "quacky rabbit" but Daniel Donkey is my fav. Wonderful blog
Holy Smokes! This is a beautiful blog - I really love these old fashioned cover illustrations - there is so much style and quality wrapped up in these vintage pieceswww.apeonthemoon.com
Your report is very interesting indeed. I invite You to see a great collection of views of borders (riigipiirid) in my Italian-Estonian site http://www.pillandia.blogspot.comHelping text in 30 different languages too.Best wishes from Italy!
Peacay-- Yikes! And that's with missing pages and a loose spine.
i too *loved* chicken book, and the whole thing is online here, david.also skeezix was a real eye-opener!
A great collection... some of them for the art and design, some of them for their strange bits of unintended humor. Well, and some for both!
Ha ha, there's a children's picture book that just came out earlier this year called "Duck! Rabbit!" that takes the concept of that shadow show cover just a little bit further. http://www.powells.com/biblio/1-9780811868655-1
