Wilder Books Colorized

According to "the special collectors editions of the Little House on the Prairie Series features Garth Williams interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover." On its (Christianbooks) website one can view one or two small interior illustrations at the table of contents, a little lamp on a table now colorized. Somehow it seems so fitting, like the colorization on old postcards or on old photographs - however unnecessary this feature can seem to those who have always admired the beautiful charcoal-texture drawings, these beautifully enhanced editions seem quite lovely. I was at Borders books leaving the media section after looking up a cd on the computer and noticed these on their shelves. This certainly made this morning interesting.
