Look and Learn!

It is stamped "Property of Blackwell Jr. High", but it looks like a textbook for a 2nd grader. It's my "Look and Learn" book by Scott, Foresman and Company from 1949 that I picked up at a flea market so long ago that I can't remember where or when. It's my single most used reference book next to my Golden Nature Guides. And it's surreal. No real words, just some very strange and exciting pictures. I love the style of it, yet it was painted by nine different people. It's torn and beat up and dirty. I wouldn't have it any other way and I can't do without it sometimes.
