British Wild Animals

A rediscovery from my childhood bookshelf - this 1958 cutie features some quite interesting type treatments and amazing, rather lurid, illustrations (I prefer the cover and title page illustrations, which is why they feature more here!).

Unconnected side thought - I wonder how many of the animals in this book are now endangered or gone from Britain? I bet there's a few.

Love the sketches :) You know, it is sad to think how many animals that are featured in this book are gone or endangered...:(
