I love when amazon packages come 5 days earlier than they are scheduled to - so exciting to get a box of books for the weekend. I finally ordered American Illustration 26. It is full of impressive and inspiring work - such an honor to be included.
Julie Morstad's book MILK TEETH also arrived - which I have been desiring ever since I discovered her work on Julia Rothman's book review site. It's a charming book, full of precious and spooky illustrations.
I also ordered THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS by John Connolly, after reading about it on Art and Ghost's blog. She describes it as a "delightfully dark yet beautiful book."
