This is some vintage illustration artwork by Clare McKinley from my library of old books that I collect. This artwork is from a Book Clare made called Animal Parade from 1949.

If you would like to see more of the books that I've collected from resale shops over the years I also sell them in my eBay store to help support my podcast!

The book is actually like a small zine. It's about 4 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches wide and has a cardstock cover. There are other versions of the book that have a cardboard cover. 

I was unable to find any more information about Clare McKinley except that this artist had made several books during this time period. All of them in a similar style.

The style of this artwork is just so vintage children's book and that is why I got it. It's hand-drawn and just so perfect.
