Space Alphabet

In honor of Sputnik 1, 50 years later (on Oct. 4th), I present to you all a nice little gem of a book I got off of ebay about a year ago: Space Alphabet (1964) by Irene Zacks. Pictures by Peter P. Plasencia. It's the entire book. I normally don't do this, but it's just too good not to share it all.


The Retro Kid Pool - Pedro in Brazil

illustrated children's books from the mid-1940's through the mid-1960's, by Mary Blair, JP Miller, The Provensen's, Art Seiden, Aurelius Battaglia, and the like.Also, also anything that was illustrated for kids at that time: albums, 45's, commericals, ads, games, toys, etc. If it's retro, and it looks cool, let's see it!
