Inspirations: Vintage Books no.12

It's been a while since I shared a vintage book that I find inspiring, so tonight I pulled one from my collection and scanned some pages. I picked this up at my favorite local used book store because I loved the simplicity and quirkiness of the interior illustrations. My favorite is the page where a duck is sporting a top hat, jacket, glasses, and a walking cane.

The book is titled Morning Noises and is written and illustrated by Alain Grée, and published by Wonder Books, Inc. in 1962.

I'll say it once, I'll say it again. You find the BEST vintage books! Don't know how you do it.

I honestly think it's a lot of luck and being in the right place at the right time. And I've been buying books for long enough that I have set styles I kind of automatically keep an eye out for. I never buy for monetary value, just solely on if it aesthetically appeals to me.
