This book is another library sale find. A Little Golden Book, "Never Pat a Bear-A Book about Signs" was written by Mabel Watts, illustrated by Art Seiden and was published in 1971. The story isn't much but the fun illustrations and hand done type caught my eye. Here are some of my favorite pages. I particularly like the advice to "never pat a bear until it is a rug".

This is a card design that I am working on. It was inspired by the vintage turtle playing card (on the left). I'll probably simplify it so I can letterpress print the card, or I might do it as a linoleum block print. Or maybe both!
