Books & Zines XVI : Horses Of Long Ago

Not your typical picture book, at sixty plus pages, this educational overview on the history of horses up until the mid 60's is worth sharing for the artful illustrations alone. I'm yet to read it in it's entirety however I thought it was worth sharing in the books and zines series. Printing alternates between, four spot colours with full-bleed imagery and two spot colours with no bleed. Bleed, meaning the extension of the image beyond the page edge. The cover and end pages might be my favourites.

Horses Of Long Ago, written and illustrated by Dahlov Ipcar. Published by Doubleday and Company Inc. New York, 1965.
