Safari Adventure

Banana Republic
Have you noticed the latest Desktop Safari Banana Republic campaign?  It features the sought after book, I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson.  This first edition has a brown/ivory zebra striped cover that has had the Design blog world swooning for awhile now.

And BR has used this book as the inspiration for their latest campaign.  Pretty cool, huh?

I'm really digging the neutral zebra trend.  I love this zebra rug (shown above) and the gorgeous horn and lucite console table.

I personally don't wear a lot of animal prints, but I do love the styling of the safari look.

Needless to say, I have been wanting this book for a couple of years.  I scoured ebay for months and got into bidding wars to try to buy a first edition for less than a small fortune.   
Fortunately, all that hard work paid off around my Birthday a few months ago.  I finally won the ebay auction for only $40.00, still a lot of money for a book, but not a lot for a collector's edition.  

Do you love this book as much as I do?
