on friendship: a selection

i've posted about peter pauper press before...really i can't accurately express how enamored i am with this once little press...this book, on friendship: a selection is my favorite of all. at least of the books i've seen so far. it's super special because it's illustrated by eric carle of the very hungry caterpillar fame...the illustrations are hand silkscreened, i have another copy where the pink and green used are much lighter...i love these slight differences...and all of the illustrations are magically delicious...it's just a really endearing book that would make a lovely valentine's gift, i think!
