Lucky Find books - "Faber Book Of Nursery Songs"

I found this thick tome (175 pages!) a while ago at one of my favourite charity sales where they have a whole container (as in back of a truck) of books. You never know what you're going to get - and this is what I got.

Its full of lovely illustrations by Alan Howard who I had not heard of before. Not much out there on the internets about him unfortunately :( There are about 8 colour plates and almost every other song/rhyme has a gorgeous ink drawing to go with it. Looking through flickr I found this image which is also in this book.

One day when I have more time I'll photograph a few more illustrations from this lovely lucky find :)

  1. I found a puzzle with illustrations by Rie Cramer for Sharm that remind me of this. Now her little one's wickedly enjoying the puzzle that I hoped she wouldn't want to keep!
