Images from this book can also be found in hundreds of other websites or blogs but I still felt it would be good to upload some from my own copy - even though it's in tatters and very difficult to scan!
Illustrations and text was produced by the famous American husband and wife team, Alice Provensen (born 1917) and Martin Provensen (1916-1987) in 1952. My copy must be from some years later but I'll never know exactly when, because some annoying kid ripped off the title page - probably decades ago! Hugely influential work on subsequent generations of designers and illustrators. Here's a short biography on the couple from Wikipedia and references on other books by them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_and_Martin_Provensen
