Scrapbooks - they can be illustrious

#estatesale #books #oldmagazines #toon #howto #thingsfoundinbooks #nostalgia #cartoons #cartooning #draw #scrapbook #connecticut #picking #1930s #illustration #illustrator #urbanarcheology #cartooning #humour #funny #bookcollection #humor
Scrapbooks often have no context. They may have been busy work for bored children or more possibly a reflection on the fascination of high quality color illustration. How could you just throw away such high quality art when the magazines pile up? They couldn't - so we find scrapbooks like these from the 30's and get a look at images commissioned by advertisers to leap off the page as if real.

The odds and ends you see... Rocket Chalk.

#estatesale #movingsale #oddity #oddsandends #1960s #rockets #chalk
The odds and ends you see... Rocket Chalk. The age of rockets and the promise of space travel added sleek shapes and fins from cars to Chalk? No fins here, but with rocket Chalk you won't stay long after school writing "I will not drive by an estate sale." 100 times. Seen at my friend's - Windy Cats Estate Sales in Brookfield, CT.

Found at the The annual Friends of the Newtown Library Book sale: Science fiction or fact?

The annual Friends of the Newtown Library Book sale is a Mecca for book collectors, avid readers and me. There is always a selection of ancient tomes of all sizes and old paper to choose from. This pulp science fiction title was strangely prophetic.
