My Brimful Book: Favorite Poems of Childhood
|My Brimful Book: An All-New Collection of All-Time Favorites, illustrated by Tasha Tudor, Margot Austin and Wesley Dennis. The Platt & Munk Co., 1960.|
Remember how I bought this book at the Kansas Barn Sale last month?
|Ooooo, endpapers! LOVE, love, love pretty endpapers.|
Well, I thought I'd take a few days, here and there, to show you what the innards of this lovely, oversized picture book actually look like!
As you can see from the Table of Contents, the book is really three books in one. In order to show you all the pretty pictures, I thought I'd split this post into three! So let us begin with the first section.
Yes, Tasha Tudor. She would be the main reason I bought the book.
There isn't much left for me to say, is there? Platt & Munk released First Poems of Childhood a few year later. Leanne scanned some of it on her blog, Vintage Books for the Very Young. Same illustrations, adjusted for a differently sized book.
I'll have part two next week!
[Edit: Part Two is here, Part Three is here.]
