Forty-five thousand dollar leftovers

The 45,000 dollars in the title refers to the asking price for a "collection of 138 twentieth-century artist's books by the Japanese author/artist TAKEI Takeo (1894-1982)." If you were wondering what to get me for my birthday... [link for many more images]

The rest of these leftovers -- from children's books all over the world -- come from the International Children's Digital Library -- a site which basically took over my life for a week or so. I feel like the Otto Korsterling images are from another site, but I didn't properly keep track of the location. I think the finger puppets come from the previously-covered Fledgling. I cut and pasted some of the images together.
