As many of you know I'm a collector of cast-off books that may have something to offer my stash of collage materials. While we were in Illinois last weekend my aunt gave me two large boxes filled with books she thought I may be able to use. They are a treasure trove and I'm still going through everything but I took some images of favorites to share with you today. A big thank you to my aunt for these books!
I especially loved the color and design of these book covers and the more ornate ones below.
An old Boy Scouts handbook from 1925 is generously illustrated with detailed images, charts, diagrams and unique advertisements from the 1920's. There is some wonderful collage material here!
Among the books was this pile of Workbasket magazines from the 50's and 60's. They are filled with amazing crafty images, patterns and much more vintage goodness. I can hardly wait to get out my favorite scissors and start clipping!
