I've said it before. I just love everything about the cover illustrations of these 1950's Child Craft books. I like the limited use of color on the red background and they're all just so darn cute! Anja, how is it that you keep finding them? Check out these and more in her shop :)

Those look great - I don't think we have them in Australia because I've never seen them before. The colours are wonderful!

This is the third time I've found them while thrifting. I was blown away by all the designs! I wonder if there are more? I love the colors so much. I posted some hi-res images on flickr so they might even look nice printed out and framed or something.

These are so beautiful, I love them! I would love to put them up in a little boy's room.
