The Wisdom of Professor Happy

Pouring rain outside, so I had to turn to 'The Wisdom of Professor Happy' for some macro inspiration!
This 1923 book of health tips includes:
-"Sleep with your window open, and your mouth shut."
-"Have horse sense and eat oatmeal."
-"Laughing is a much better exercise than kicking."

67 pages of amusing and sage advice, illustrated with great little sketches by Jessie Gillespie.
I found it a challenge to take a photo of a flat book in poor lighting today!

I can just imagine my joy reading this little book. Professor Happy, what a perfect name.
Love it Mar!
