On September 3, 1993 we did spot these books with more GUMNUT children's classics by writer May Gibbs and others.
This was at the Banquet, the day before... see link below From Hong Kong to Sydney, Australia
Pieter being very happy after doing that day a summary of the AMGA/ISMS International Workshop and Seminar and that went very well; great applaus from the audience.
Pieter also was a speaker.
These two books, inside a hard case, were traveling home with us... We enjoyed this relaxed shopping experience after all the business was taken care of.
Lovely kitties on the back of each book...
Visions of Fantasy for Volume One and Through the Magic Door for Volume Two
LOVE these GUMNUTS by May Gibbs!
A darling GUMNUT bookmark as a gift!
Other side of the cute GUMNUT bookmark...
To the right inside the 'mushroom shaped' drawing it reads:
Please be kind to all
and don't pull flowers up by the roots
Those were heavy books, but we never shied away from carrying our load when traveling.
Of course, those were the years before the Maximum Baggage Weight...!
Soon these will be read to some favorite little girls that we LOVE!
