Once Upon a Time

I started collecting vintage storybooks a few years ago when my artwork took a turn for the storybook illustration vibe. I loved Winnie the Pooh as a child and always marveled at the drawings, and though I did like Beatrix Potter as a kid, I only really grew to appreciate her as an adult. These days finding a vintage or even antique storybook is one of the most inspiring things to me. My favorite pieces are my 1931 edition of Bambi, a 23 book collection of Beatrix Potter Tales (not pictured), and an 1897 edition of Through the Looking Glass
I like to accentuate the section of books with items like tea cups, and my Squirrel statue, Mr. Squiggles.
