Happy animals

Came across a book of 30 postcards in Kinokuniya (easily the best bricks-and-mortar bookshop in Sydney, in my opinion) by Japanese illustrator Junzo Terada.

Each postcard is different and all share a mid-century sensibility, which reminds me of another favourite illustrator, Charley Harper.

For $12.50, it seemed criminal to leave them behind.

The collection is called Happy Animal Time, and is published by Chronicle Books.

If you're reading this...
Sarah, thank you for taking the time to offer your expertise regarding Bella. We were both very touched.
We investigated the subcutaneous fluid treatment with our other cat (the vet did it a couple of times) and we would have continued it ourselves should she have lived. We're not going to go down that route with Bella, purely because of her age. She's now 15 going on 16 and don't think it fair to keep on asking her to fight it.


  1. These are adorable. Happy Sunday-- I hope you had a great weekend. x Charlotte

  2. The illustrations by Terada are wonderful, I may even like them more than Mr Harper's and that's saying something...
