Aren't these just the cutest drawings?

Never Pat a bear golden book art by seiden

This is from a Little Golden Book called "Never Pat a Bear - A Book About Signs" with illustrations by Art Seiden. It was published in 1971 and the whole thing has been scanned and featured on the wonderful blog, Golden Gems.

Like the drawings of PD Eastman, these pictures just make me smile.

Since it's "a book about signs," there's a lot of really fun hand lettering all through the book...

There are about a kajillion more illustrated treats like this at the Golden Gems blog. For example, there's this book (also illustrated by Art Seiden) called, "The Spotted Dotted Puppy."
