New Old Books and Happy New Year!

I got a couple of new old books for myself and I'd like to share some of the beautiful illustrations from the books with you guys. The first 3 is a set called "The Bible Speaks" by Hella Taubes and illustrated by Dan Bar-Giora, first published in 1971 by The Soncino Press. They are bible stories from the Old Testaments for kids with beautiful artworks. These are big books, too, with hard covers. I got my copies directly from The Soncino Press, but seems like they are out of stock right now.

And the second book I actually bought a couple of months ago. It's "Love and Joy About Letters" by Ben Shahn, published in 1963 by Grossman Publishers, with gorgeous lettering and illustrations inside. You can find old copies at Amazon or Ebay.
