How cute!

I found this little children's guide to sewing at a car boot sale before Christmas and just love the colours and style of illustrations. Very much of their time, but still fresh and bright and really cute!

I'm looking at a lot of this kind of imagery from the late 50's and early 60's in preparation for the book project we have coming up at uni. I'm thinking of doing something about my grandparents in their heyday. There's something so optimistic and innocent about illustrations of that time that I love.

Very nice. Love the color palette :-) The book looks quite modern somehow.
