Nostalgic Imagery

The illustrations by Mark Allen Miller are nostalgic, bold and downright fun. The use of colors and patterns brings new life and meaning to everyday objects. I would love to see objects like these in person. Imagine a walk in the park...you look down...and there are plaid acorns on the sidewalk! Wouldn't that be an interesting walk?

Love your book binding post... I remind those classes in graphic design/packaging.
And the rolling book racks and tables... reminded me of the school cafeteria too!
