Finders, and well, keepers...
Last weekend on my travels i braved storms and torrents (well, about 30cm of water gushing really fast along the gutter).. to go to our local second hand book fair. One of my bargains was a 1957 edition of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff in Japanese!!! for $2. WOW - featuring my favourite muted colour palette.
Also for 50 cents Panda at the Seaside was also mine (seen here top right).. published in 1982 by Oda Taro it features wonderful (ie: cutesy, bold and graphic) illustrations.
This weekend also saw the Finders Keepers market in Sydney, now I'm sorry that my neck hurt and i couldn't carry my camera to show you the new space - which was excellent - high ceilings, not toooo squishy. But here is a list of who was there. One of the pieces that caught my eye was the red typewriter above from Lino Creative. But to make up for no photos here is a link to her colourful work here and some more here.
