Books! 1962 classic kids book by Murray McCain and John Alcorn reissued
Witty, stylish and now with more than a touch of nostalgia attached, Books! - written by Murray McCain and John Alcorn and originally published in 1962 - has now been reissued. Though technically for kids, it's likely that grown-ups will get the same, if not more, pleasure from it too.
The inventive typography, coupled with the distinctly sixties illustrations gives the book a look of its own - there's a fair bit of day-glo ink going on.
There are 42 pages to discover, at a size slightly larger than the original format to make it more kid-friendly.
You can pick up a copy for £11.99 from The Hambledon.
