I Married Adventure Osa Inspired Design

After several attempts, I finally won 
on eBay!  I have been pining after this vintage zebra covered classic 
but haven't ever loved it enough to pay the $100-150 price tag.
I snagged this baby up for a mere $27! 

I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson Zebra Cover

Here's my tip on how to snag yours for steal: 
look for listings with the original dust jacket. 
The seller I purchased mine from only posted images with the blue cover:

Dust Jacket Dust Cover I Married Adventure Blue Vintage Book

which, let's be honest, is not that cute. I realized a lot of bidders over-looked this listing
because the gorgeous zebra print cover wasn't catching their eye, so they didn't bid.
The original cover is probably in better condition if the dust jacket is present, too.
That's a win/win in my book!

Here's how others have styled their "I Married Adventure:"

The antiqued zebra print is making me dream of using a lil' zebra hide elsewhere in my home:
