Thrift Store Find Makes Me Happy...

This book is filled with color pics on all pages.
At first I thought I would use it to alter into 70's hippy book.
But I just can't goof it up so I may use images in
some other art projects.

Inside cover is wonderful!

Each page a fiesta of different mushrooms.


This looks like something under water. Text by Bernard Dupre', translated by David Macrae. From Galahad Books. Printed in West-Germany in 1974. Some times the one good thing you find is a treasure. This one is a color fest!

That is beautiful! Love those illustrations. I am always torn when I find something that wonderful, I want to frame the prints but don't want to damage the book! It's a conundrum.

Lovely find and that totally reminds me of the 70's. My mom had a mushroom theme in her kitchen back then. Thanks for the blast to the past!!
