Slowly, slowly I'm getting pictures into Flickr and posted into their appropriate groups. I wanted to get going with pictures from the vintage children's books I have - an old love of mine. These are from two of my most recent finds (much easier to access since they're at the top of the pile versus the bottom).
This book is called Funny Town, written by Eve Merriam and illustrated by Evaline Ness. I picked this up solely for the illustrations, I haven't even read the whole story yet, but the colors and graphics are really wonderful and so representative of the 60s. The book was printed in 1963.
This is the title page of Children on the Map by Cecile and Billie Salway, copyright is 1938. I love the font used in this one. It features children from different countries and a page of information about what their lives are like.
