Orange and Black

A trip to the post office yesterday afternoon ended up in the Oxfam bookshop on Kings Heath High St.
£1.95 bought me this 1959 copy of M.R. James ghost stories. I enjoyed the t.v adaptions of these that are often shown at Christmas.

But apart from liking the stories, these Penguin editions have such lovely covers...

Another recent purchase is this beautiful illustrated book of European trees. A similar use of colour to the Penguin cover, and sharp, graphic drawing. I hear the sketchbook calling.
