o-o and i did a little late afternoon charity shopping yesterday. we spent the princely sum of £2.40 and came away with some treasures. a few 1970s children's books including one called 'grandfather ben' by someone called eva scherbarth. i love the limited colour palette, the detail of the line work and the strange perspective. the story is quite downbeat but it ends with grandfather ben smoking a pipe on his own, not the kind of denouement you see in modern children's stories. doesn't their house on a hill look like a nice place to live?
her website (fashioned by me, i even did some tinkering with that there HTML code, what a geek).
