vintage noah's ark book

noah's ark by miche wynants
Sorry for not posting yesterday--Lucia's been extremely feverish the past two days and tending to a sick baby has consumed all my time. She is sleeping right now, so I thought I'd jump on and share some photos of a beautiful book I discovered earlier this month.

My parents' local library has a lot of old books. Like really old--the ones I get excited about.

This old copy of Noah's Ark by Miche Wynants was just calling out to me.

It alternates between black white and color illustrations. I can't decide which I like better.
noah and dove
This goes into my "I want to rip out the pages and frame it as art" category.
lion illustrations
All the animals get on the ark--two by two...
noah's ark bug illustrations
Even the insects--which as a general rule, I am not a big fan of, but here, I kind of like them.

This inspires me to some sort of paper collage activity--the ocean is gorgeous.

I returned this one with great reluctance! It's on my list of ones I hope to find at Goodwill or at a library sale one day.

What books have you recently discovered?
