The Apple & the Butterfly, vintage children's book
The Apple and the Butterfly, by Enzo and Iela Mari (an Italian modernist artist and designer and his artist/writer wife).
This book is absolutely wonderful! In a series of sparse, beautiful images it elegantly tells a story without any words. A gorgeous picture book to explore with young children, or just to enjoy yourself as an example of fantastic vintage illustration. I've flipped through it at least a dozen times already!
First published in 1969, this edition was published in 1970 and reprinted in 1972.
This copy is showing signs of age and use (wear to the corners, some discolouration to the cover, some creases and very slight water damage to a few of the pages) but is holding up well considering it's almost 50 years old and has been in not one but two different school libraries :)
Hardback, approx 21 x 21.5 cm, 40 pages.
