Seriously, this gloriousness was FREE. (Click on the photos to open a larger version, you won't be disappointed.)
I am NUTS for the illustrations in this little book. They're just everything I love about illustrations. . . fun patterns, great color palette, interesting line quality. I keep looking for information on the artist (Russell D. Bushee) but I'm coming up short, save for one obituary and one short biography.
Look at her outfit! Just so perfect quirky 1970s. Plus there are a few funny 1970s-y sentences in the book. Under the heading "Here are some tasting hints": "Do not smoke while tasting wines." Hahaha.
Whoever priced this thing as Free was clearly mistaken. I looked it up on Amazon and used copies go for upwards of $15! Plus, it's part of the "International Party Series" (of course now I'm obsessed with locating them all), and most of them seem pretty valuable.
You know that normally I'd cut this thing to bits and use it in my collages, but it's really too nice for that. It's staying in tact. You're welcome.
