I Think This Book Illustrated by Yoshie Watanabe is Really Beautiful...




(...all images from here...)

I saw this book in this bookstore the other day and it looks so great! I didn't buy it what with being busy trying to save some pennies for OTHER people's gifts, but maybe somewhere along the line I can justify getting it for myself. The drawings are so delicate - this last one - with the black lace - is incredible!

Here are some other things made by Yoshie Watanabe (make sure you check out those cool flower vases!) and here is her design company...

Speaking of beautiful illustrators - I came across some of Julie Morstad 's beautiful drawings in this chichi little magazine (Vol.23 - you can preview the back issue and see some!)...
