illustration charity shops pattern vintage colour

my big wonder book annual

i found this book a few days ago in a charity shop, and i just had to show you some photos from it, as i love the illustrations. i seriously wanted to take photos of every page. it’s called my big wonder book annual (i’ve linked to an ebay seller, a few pounds is the best price i could find) and the book is full of various stories from different writers, and there’s a few different illustrators.

i love illustrated childrens books, and have my whole life. no, i don’t have any children, but that by no means stops me from loving these books. generally i prefer ones that are from the 60’s and older, but there’s plenty of modern ones that are fabulous too. do you have any favourite illustrated books?

if you’re interested, the very lovely fritha of tigerlillyquinn has set up a collaborative project on her blog called ‘we like to read’ wherein you can write a post about any childrens books you (or you and your little one) love. they’re to be posted on the first and third mondays of each month and you can submit your links there too. be sure to check it out!
