I got a couple of new old books for myself and I'd like to share some of the beautiful illustrations from the books with you guys. The first 3 is a set called "The Bible Speaks" by Hella Taubes and illustrated by Dan Bar-Giora, first published in 1971 by The Soncino Press. They are bible stories from the Old Testaments for kids with beautiful artworks. These are big books, too, with hard covers. I got my copies directly from The Soncino Press, but seems like they are out of stock right now.
And the second book I actually bought a couple of months ago. It's "Love and Joy About Letters" by Ben Shahn, published in 1963 by Grossman Publishers, with gorgeous lettering and illustrations inside. You can find old copies at Amazon or Ebay.
Hope you've enjoyed them all. And as the last image said, Happy New Year! I wish you all a blessed and healthy 2012! Xx

I can't believe this year has come to an end (almost). I so appreciate all your friendship, kind comments and encouragements throughout this year. May this holiday season bring you love, peace and lots of blessings. Remember to share your fortune with those who are less fortunate, spend time with your loved ones, eat lots of yummy food, and relax. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all! Xx
