I discovered Grain Edit, a design blog, a while ago. A great source of inspiration, ideas and designers! From there I happened upon this blog, stickers and stuff, full of great images from children's books both new and old, as well as posters, signs, photography and other things in print.

Here are my favorites:
Starfish by Edith Thacher Hurd

A newer version is available but this is from the 1962 edition. I believe it is out of print but available here at Alibris. If anyone would like to purchase this for me I would not be mad at that!

Also check his animations. Here are a few of my favorites:
Made for each other

Things that make me happy!
