Fun, old books

Something else that I like collecting is vintage children's books. I find them to be fun, colorful and charming. However, I don't buy them for storytelling. The two ways in which I do use them are: 1. As pop-culture reference material, and 2. As a vintage illustration/image archive that I can cut 'n paste from while working on collage art. Well, technically, I scan & print out whichever book page has the image I like, and then THAT is what gets cut up. I don't want to damage these beautiful old books any more than they've already been!

The bookshelves have slowly been filling up over the years, so what you see here is just a fraction of my total vintage & pop culture book collection.
Verrry pleasing! :)

Sometimes I like to go to our library just to look at the pictures in older (50's & 60's) children books. I really like your picture here!
