What an interesting find...

Definitely--judge this book by its cover!

As pictured, the white-stripe is a paper wrap.

This is a beautiful book, telling the story of an Australian woman who lived from 1899-1977. Her adventures cover the range of change that happened in those years. For me, the details aren't terribly important. I bought it for the pictures--her wallpaper patterns--and came away with a fascinating story about a woman who never quit.

I love the illustrations; I wish they had been printed at a full repeat.
