Blogs I love: Vintage Kids’ Books My Kid Loves

As soon as I found this blog a couple of days ago I knew I had to blog about it. In fact, it’s been open on my browser all this time as I slowly work my way back in time and ohhh and ahhh at all the amazing pictures.
There’s something special about old kid’s books. As a kid I preferred my mum’s old books to my own shiny new ones, and some of those books became my childhood favourites. I’m very glad that she shared her favourite books with me. Going to charity shops and finding similar books to the ones we already had used to be a really big excitement. This woman does the same, but more obsessively, and she documents her findings on her amazingly comprehensive blog. Anybody who enjoys children’s literature and/or illustration should add this to their reader.

Visit her blog and her etsy shop for more.
