April Vintage Book Favorites

You may or may not be aware that I have another blog called my vintage book collection (in blog form) where I post scans from my vintage book collection. I thought I'd post some of my favorite illustrations I featured this April.

Click on the image to go to the post on the other blog & to get information about the book the illustration comes from.


  1. See, I want to be friends in real life so I could borrow these books from you, and then give them back safe and sound. Your book shelf intrigues me, Mallory! Too much!

  2. These are wonderful, and make me curious about the stories they come from. Especially the rat (I think it's a rat) clinging onto a snake, hovering above a nest while holding a large egg. What is going on there? I clicked through to your other site and all the images from this book are amazing! I also love the look of 'A Flea Story'.


Thanks for your comment you wonderful person you.
