Connecting People Through Vintage

Our high-quality authentic reproductions of vintage ephemera and classic children’s illustrated books combine retro nostalgia with whimsical modern design. We endeavor to preserve and share historic illustrations in the form of greeting cards, postcards, children’s books, gift books, stickers, journals, and art prints. We humbly reproduce the work of classic children’s book illustrators such as Jessie Willcox Smith, Arthur Rackham, Alfonse Mucha, and Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, and we also write and illustrate books of our own creation, such as Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Led Zeppelin. We are the proud home of the Good Dog Carl books by Alexandra Day--in fact, the real Good Dog Carl is our family’s Rottweiler and one of two beloved office dogs.

Laughing Elephant of Seattle, Washington began in 1993 and grew from the roots of Green Tiger Press, founded by Sandra and the late Harold Darling in 1969 in San Diego, California. Their sons Chev Darling and Benjamin Darling are honored to be the second generation of Darlings to lead this small, independent publishing house as their family business. Drawing on their parents’ collections of vintage books and ephemera that number in the tens of thousands, they design and print almost entirely in house at 3645 Interlake Avenue North in the friendly Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Today, our staff consists of three Darlings and two dear friends. Our small but mighty team is dedicated to providing excellent customer service to our retail and wholesale customers alike, many of whom have come to feel like family.
