Im always on the look out for second hand books, so yesterday when I walked past a church with a sign outside saying ‘book fare’ I couldn’t resist!

Got this rather nice book; True to Type by Denys Parsons for £2. It was published in 1955. The yellow of the cover and its illustration caught my eye, the drawings in the book are by Haro. Can’t find anything online about Haro, which is a shame as the illustrations in this are really lovely and simple. Plus there are lots of them, way more than other old illustrated books I’ve almost bought before.

I love the mid-century modern furniture in the 3rd picture, and the policeman in the 4th. But they are all great!

In a strange coincidence I saw the exact same book minus the dust jacket for sale at the flea market today for the same price!

The rest of the illustrations and some more photos are on my flickr here

Some sketches from work and dinner. Today at work I got to sit in on a story meeting for the short film they’re making to accompany the feature I’m working on. (Hence some of the drawings of editing equipment.) It was so interesting to see the back and forth, and the environment is so open and creative… I was encouraged to give my input. It was exciting to think my ideas were useful to the process. The other sketches are from dinner tonight. (Noodle World again, I think my boyfriend and I are going to become regulars there… the server remembered us and everything!)
