I don’t think there are even enough words to describe swedish artist Stig Lindberg’s dapper style.  I’m obsessed with the image above!  The pipe and bowtie are out of this world.  Mr. Lindberg’s artwork is just as good.  I love his work for Gustavsberg as well.  Check out some of my favorites below.

How and Why Wonder Books

January 13, 2009

I found all of these great How and Why Wonder Books from the 1960’s – 1970’s on Rocket Roberts.  I love the artwork and illustrations on the cover.  Kids must have had a blast reading these.  Below are some of my favorite.
