Today I am celebrating some of my favourite book jackets from the 1950s and 1960s, all of them Elf books published by Rand-McNally.
I have written about these before, I love the pocket-sized formats, the sturdiness and thick paper of these little books (way better than Golden Books, sorry!). But most of all I love the illustrations - and the colours and typography used on the little jackets! They are all mini-artworks, imagine them as huge posters, wouldn't that be wonderful!
Pip - I promise I will start a Flickr group for these soon!
