Vintage Bookstore Find

September 22, 2010

This post was originally going to be a photo collection of our recent apple-picking adventure in Julian. But as it turns out, I have way too many photos from our day-trip for one blog post. Oh, don’t worry … the apple-picking post is coming soon.

So I decided to split up the photos and show you a bit of our adventure with my amazing purchase from the Old Julian Book House. This amazing little shop sells a variety of rare and used books. I love looking at old kid’s books. And I was so excited to find this!

The Tiny Tots Simple Objects book is from 1947. It’s in great condition. The material pages still brimming with color. I love the simplicity, the 1940s artwork, and the classic illustrated objects in the book. I also love that it’s from 1947, but not too gender-biased. I just had to have it for my collection.

I don’t think Sophie will be getting her little hands on this book just yet. Perhaps I’ll find a creative way to mount it in the Reading Corner until I’m convinced it won’t be destroyed by her or the many 4-legged creatures who now reside in our home.
