So speaking of rabbits, the velveteen kind to be exact - I have an interesting & cool vintage find to share. Last year I stumbled on a book called, Best in Children's Books- a compilation of stories edited by Doubleday press in 1960. I started thumbing through it because it included The Velveteen Rabbit (which is probably the most influential book of my childhood). As a bonus, I was literally giddy when I saw that Maurice Sendak (who is a favorite illustrator of mine) had illustrated it! Do I even have to tell you that I I bought the book just for these illustrations?
Sendak's early drawings are my favorite & I really love his interpretation of this story. I thought a few days before Easter would be perfect time to share them. Hope you have a great weekend! Happy Easter!
