One of my favorite local bookstores (Village Books in Bellingham, WA) sends you a postcard on your birthday that gives you the percentage of how old you are, off of a purchase. I have been getting these in the mail since I was in high school and always save mine for a special or unique book. Of course now my discount is bigger than it used to be - but next year I will reach the limit. Chris and I recently had a "date night" and after dinner out, spent time browsing the shelves of books so that we could use our very old postcards. This is the book I selected, Weird & Wonderful and it is just that.... and more.
I am intrigued by this book to say the least. What really sparked my interest is what is written on the bottom: Discoveries From The Mysterious World of Forgotten Children's Books. There are so many gorgeous & odd illustrations, these are just a few of my favorites. I highly recommend flipping through this if you are as interested in illustrations and children's books as I am. It's published by a small local publisher call Laughing Elephant Press (Green Tiger Press) out of Seattle that publishes some really sweet children's books. This is a cool find & a good read for sure.
