Some more scans for your viewing pleasure! These are from an old 1960s childen's book called Baby Elephant Goes to China that I found at a thrift store a while ago. The book is in pretty terrible shape so I didn't feel too bad taking some of the pages out to frame.
Even though this book is from the 60s, I love that the illustration don't look typically 1960s. The pencil drawings with the shots of deep mustard look so contemporary to me.
Also, I wouldn't mind stealing mama elephant's floral bathing suit and baby elephant's white glasses...or even that teddy bear's striped shirt! Well played, children's story book. Well played.
PS: My monthly column is up on the Karmaloop Ladies blog! This month I give some tips on how to clean your vintage items :)
