Tania's Picks: Beautiful Picture Books, July 2016

Will it ever end? I hope not. This picture book obsession of mine doesn't show any sign of slowing up, and I'm delighted to share with you some recent book purchases--many of which I find in local stores and some online. Many of these, I've been coveting for some time, and others are surprise finds.
