Day 3 of books that I’m fond of, in this case, the whole Puffin Picture Book series. This one is Village and Town by S.R. Badmin. This one isn’t a first (1957) and is undated. Pub.

My second day of ‘Your Favourite Books’ entry. Figs of Southern & South-Central Africa. By John & Sandra Burrows. Somewhat different to my usual stuff! I first got interested in bushveld trees, then I bought the books on the trees, which somehow progressed to illustrated dust jackets. How odd!🤔This particular book is an all time favourite. Beautifully written, illustrated and photographed. Scientific and anecdotal. Interestingly, I met the authors for the first time, quite by chance in a second hand bookshop just outside Kew Gardens. Publisher. Umdaus Press. 2003 #figtrees #africantrees #botanical #botanicalillustration #kewgardens
