Aussie Art Book

We popped into our local book shop this week & found a stack of lovely books on the clearance shelf. This lovely title, Roy & Matilda The Gallery Mice, was amongst them. It caught my eye because I'm always on the lookout for books with pieces of famous {or not} Australian Art inside. This sweet book tells the tale of two little mice who live in the Melbourne Art Museum & the inspiration they get from each of the famous art prints they see.

The inside is just as lovely with reasonably large prints of the various famous prints. Nana was with us when I made the purchase & flipped through the book & she was equally delighted with the book telling us what each picture was & whom she thought painted it. Then she asked us to check & see if she was right.  The only downer to the book is that I really wish there were prints in the back of the book that you could take out, you know perhaps the same size as the book that you could even hang up if you wanted. However, considering the book was formerly $30 & we got it for $5 I'm not complaining!

That book looks absolutely delightful. Isn't there something so satisfying about a buying a book on special and then finding it's just so good? Or is that just me that feels that way?
