It's been a while since I blogged about vintage books so I thought I'd show you some of the wonderful illustrations I've seen recently at Stopping Off Place, a new Canadian address*that I love and found thanks to Will. Another gem to add to your daily reads!

Jessie Oonark (Baker Lake, Nunavut) 1906-1985

Round and Round and Square by Fredun Shapur, Abelard-Schuman, 1965 (reprinted 1968)

Bookmark and enjoy!
