This book came from a school gala last weekend. The birth of and island by Millicent E Selsam, Illustrated by Winifred Lubell. 1959. It's about the island of Krakatoa near Java. There are lots of lovely illustrations in this style but these are the ones I liked the best. I thought they would make nice cushion covers. My daughter said that we had too many cushion covers already but she doesn't know what she is saying, because I'm sure there is no such thing as too many cushion covers.
above, the arrival of fruit pigeons, which brought figs to the island.
