I was so tickled when I found the book below recently at a thrift shop for twenty-five cents - because I had never seen it before, and because I am totally smitten with the man who designed and illustrated the book, John Alcorn. (Also, Click Here to visit a fantastic website showcasing 300 examples of his work.)
I already had another book he illustrated (from which the rest of the illustrations I am showing you today came), titled "The Fireside Book Of Children's Songs".
Aren't these illustrations fantastic?!
Mr. Alcorn also designed this "Love" stamp for the United States Postal Service in 1987:
Another example below, the artwork for a 1969 Pepsi advertisement:
And one last thing - he also designed the package seen here for Eve cigarettes:
I think he was a fabulous talent, and I just wanted to share that with you.
