Some recent finds

| Vintage finds

Hello friends, it’s been awhile since I did a flea market finds post so today I thought I’d share some recent finds.
Recently, I’ve been super lucky to have found some wonderful vintage children’s books.
I found The Magic Garden and In The Nursery, books edited by Olive Dupre Miller from The Book House for Children. I didn’t know this company at all and it turns out that this company was founded by Ms. Miller who wanted to publish children’s books according to her strict standards. She wanted to provide the best literature for children which would help the child develop good values.
They contain gorgeous stories and rhymes and are beautifully illustrated. Even after all this time, the colors are still very vibrant and alive. Just look at these illustrations

I lucked out even more when I found a children’s book with decorations by Maurice Sendak. It’s called The Animal Family by Randall Jarrell and it was published in 1965. I don’t know this author and I’m really looking forward to reading this book! Here are some of Maurice Sendak’s illustrations..
