Jim Flora Books

To me album artwork is a very important part of an album (or CD, or 7", or 8-track, or cassette ,etc.). There have been many talented artists over the years, but one of my all-time faves is Jim Flora. He also had did the artwork for some children's books - over the years I've actually had better luck finding his books than his albums! Among his great children's books are The Fabulous Firework Family, and Leopold, the See-Through Crumbpicker I would really like to find a copy of The Day The Cow Sneezed - any leads out there? Thankfully, Irwin Chusid has put together 2 beautiful books featuring Jim Flora's artwork. You can get both of them through Amazon.com.
