Ours is a Strange and Wonderful Relationship

Here's a cute little hardcover for all you love birds out there, published by Hallmark in the 60's or 70's, as part of their "Thoughtfulness Library" of greeting card alternatives. Incredible art "drawed" by Louis Marak certifies this as a real gem of a book.





















CLICK HERE to see another adorable greeting card alternative book from my collection, and this time from American Greeting's "Sunbeam Library."

Awwwww a little birdy. I remember these book cards. Sometimes they disappointingly doubled as a present :(

That is pretty dang cute. Sometimes I think these things were inked with calligraphy pens. I mean, all those varying line thicknesses where the outer and inner edges of the line curve at different angles look more like fancy hand lettering to me than the usual brush inking does. Like it was done with a wedge-shaped nib.

It warms my heart that two individuals found true love with each other ;)

Haha, awwwww... are we speaking from disappointments of the past?

You may be right! It's definitely a super look

>It warms my heart that two individuals found true love with each other

Indeed! If a bird and a bear (it is a bear, right?) can find love-- anybody and anything can!

Thanks for the comments! Something not so cute up next
