Book Illustration Friday

montage1It seems a shame to not do something like this when I have such a wealth of resources available to me. As you may or may not know, my mum sells books (mostly kids books) on Ebay under the name gudfalabuks. Her stock levels tend to surpass the rate at which she sells, so much so that my Dad is in the middle of building a shed out the back in an attempt to reclaim some room/s. Anyway occasionally mum comes across books full of beautiful illustrations. Usually my sisters (two of which live at home) squabble over them and then I come along for a visit and the book winds up going home with me. So I now have a small but essentially endless supply of books with great illustrations. And other times I can rely on books being delivered directly into my hands.

Cue: Illustration Friday.

On Fridays you can expect to find up here a post about a book illustration/s. It might be a kids book, or a cover of a favourite novel… The few to the left are just a teaser.

    I love the rabbit smoking a pipe! Our rabbits would just chew on it though.
