Vintage book covers: Illustrations
Flood Friday Lois Lenski book cover

These four illustrated book covers come from a variety of sources. We found "Flood Friday," along with some other Lois Lenski books, from a local collector/bookseller. The "Gravity" book below, one of my favorites in our house, came from a good friend who frequents estate sales.

The last book included here probably has the best book title I know (there's one that competes, which I'll mention in a moment). The book, "What Kinda Cactus Izzat?" has special meaning to my wife and I, because I proposed to her inside a cactus and succulent greenhouse in Michigan. We've had an affinity for cacti ever since.
