Christmas! by Peter Spier

My item of the day is the children's picture book Peter Spier's Christmas!   It has the most beautiful, detailed pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations throughout, and is a hard to find Christmas book.  I am a great fan of Peter Spier's work.  He is a Dutch author and illustrator (born 1927) and the lovely detailed, intricate illustrations seen in this book are typical of his work.   You can see more photos and details here:  Peter Spier's Christmas! at Birdhouse Books.
