The Life Aquatic

Dear readers, in case you worry, Animalarium and I are still alive. 
Right now my life is quite hectic, but July should be slower paced, 
so expect more posts soon... There are lots of things I'd like to share, 
but will I ever find the time? For now, enjoy the dive!

Albert Robida, Little Hiawatha, 1914

Tomi Ungerer, Emile, 1960

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, cover by Krystyna Witkowska, 1954

Cake Please!

Sorry for the recent lack of posts, but as soon as I came back from Paris last Tuesday
I had to start working on two new Summer courses, and still don't have the time to do much else.
Today's gallery is dedicated to one of the many great things I love about the Ville Lumière,
its delicious cakes and pastries. 

Unsurprisingly, when I was a child this was one of my favorite illustrations in my favorite book...
  tarte aux framboises, moelleux au chocolat, éclair au café, gateau au chocolat et noisettes,
 créme brulée (etcetera), I already miss you!

John Dukes McKee, The Big Show, 1933

As a child I was also very fond of this book illustrated by Leonard Weisgard in 1951

Noelle Lavaivre, Pistache et Dame Tartine, 1959

Raymond de Lavererie, Histoire de Kiri et Kikou, 1959, and 
Laurent de Brunhoff, Serafina la girafe, 1961, via Curio Books

 Alain Gree, Il y a une petite abeille, via pour toujours...

Dahlov IpcarHard Scrabble Harvest, 1976
