The Joan Walsh Anglund Story Book

Found on my sister's bookshelf, a portrait of my sisters and me inscribed into a copy of The Joan Walsh Anglund Story Book. Published by Random House in 1978.

That is amazing! What a precious find! And I loved Joan Walsh Anglund when I was a little girl. I think I wished the world fit into her perfect lines and colors. I love her sketch of the three of you.

I love it and am totally jealous

Wow, you just don't get this thing from around a corner! This is truly something to behold. A book with a signature of the author is something but a book with a sketch of you and your sisters, this is truly a unique item and must be kept dearly!

What's cool thing to own! I LOVED Nibble Nibble Little Mousekin as a child , I liked the contrast between the simple featureless Hansel and Gretel and the Wicked Old Witch! Magical stuff!

I'm so envious! What a treasure, I was such a fan of Joan Walsh Anglund..... her illustration style really influenced my own.
