The Cat's Pajamas - The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast
My mom brought me this book a few weeks ago, telling me I used to love it as a kid. I can't remember much of it, but boy, DO I LOVE IT. It really is one of the prettiest things I have ever seen in my life. It was made in the early seventies by this guy named Alan Aldridge who is my new illustration-king. And the story is pretty amazing too. You can read it here on flickr. Hope you enjoy! Pictures are clickable.
Aren't they amazing? So trippy and 70's! And I love anything animal-inspired. The last Cat's Pajamas was most definitely inspired by this book, and I will love them both equally.
