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.
