The Very Rich Hours of Mrs. Mole

In 1969, illustrator Ronald Searle's wife Monica was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her treatment, Searle made a "Mrs. Mole" illustration to cheer her after every chemotherapy session. They were a gift of love, never meant for publication. Monica Searle survived until last summer, and Ronald Searle passed away in December. Now 47 of those illustrations are collected in the book Les Très Riches Heures de Mrs Mole. You can see several more of the cheerful images at Brain Pickings. Link -via Not Exactly Rocket Science
