I just happened to check out the Fomato website and its got a whole new look and lots of new designs since I last visited.
I really like their cards and the humor is right up my street too, especially on their sale: free cards page!
They now have an online store so you can stock up on some sweet funny goodness!

I know lots of you are Mary Blair fans so you will be pleased to know this book is being re-released next year by Golden Books. You can pre-order a copy here. If you can't wait that long and prefer the original thing, there are a few second hand ones knocking around click here.
Little John Bear in the Big City - illustrations and text by Bernice Myers (who has also illustrated one of my favorites Off into Space!, I will try & get around to sharing it with you soon.)
My favorite part of this book is the cover, the story is funny and cute - I thought this was the funniest page - where the little bears coat has got all thin on the elbows and Mama Bear is trying to glue bits on!

I know I have shared the elephant stickers with you before but I thought you might like to see the whole collection of these glow in the dark ones. They were bought from a few different trips to Bangkok from the best stationery store in the world - Loft in Siam Square.

Remember the book posters we showed here recently by Rudi Bass these are by Bill Sokol.
These were all designed for the New York Times - the art director was Louis Silverstein.
I really like the top image - those big crazy white boots are so fun with a stripy bathing suit!
You can see and buy some other reprints from the International Poster Gallery.
Somebody asked me recently if I had any more Olle Eksell images.
I found these black and white ones - he designed the winelist and menus for the Karlstad Savoy.
I had a look through my Olle Eksell book (which I highly recommend and found another image for the winelist on page 162).

Amy from Art School Girl just emailed me to let me know that she is selling off some of her vintage books on her delightful etsy store.
Today's book theme is nature, in honor of Earth Day.
How sweet are those little fluffy ducks? And how could you bear to part with those books?
Thanks so much Amy.
