I'm still on the same subject, yes.


Apparently, am still not over the topic because lo and behold...another post on illustrations. This time it is about this beautifully-illustrated book "The Spring's of Joy by Tasha Tudor. Having turned this vintage-book buying thing into a new hobby, I found new ways of getting inspirations for doing illustrations myself through pages after pages of amazing work from very talented people. Tasha Tudor's work bespeaks every inch of my love for the simple country living. She accompanies each page and illustration with a beautiful quote. My favorite would be the one on the last page:



Good better, best;
Never rest
Till "good" be "better"
And "better" be "best."

-Mother Goose

  1. i am always in awe of beautiful book illustrations. <3 i remember as a kid, i used to play on the stairs with my illustrated books open...and with a wet watercolor brush, i'd follow the illustration lines, pretending i'm the one who painted them. <3

    ps. your posts on watercolor illustrations have inspired me to take it up again...<3

  2. I never thought to look at books as pieces of art in that way, but they truly are! Great illustrations can really make a book something special.
