Private Stash: Vintage Illustrations

Emberly_2The urge to thrift has been taken over by the urge to nest. Everything I look at feels like it should be wiped down, sanitized and/or organized. Recently I moved all of my son’s toys out of the living room and back into the nursery. This included all of his…er…my vintage books. We had way too many so I had to go through them and donate the ones he never reads.


Most of the vintage books I purchase are for the illustrations, since I started my collection before my son was even born. The books I ended up donating had wonderful illustrations but we never read them, so to ease my mind I took some pictures of my favorite ones. Enjoy!


Don’t you love the colors in this one? It’s illustrated by Ed Emberly. He’s the man.


This book featured a sun illustration on almost every page.

Sun_1How about you all? Any favorite children’s illustrators I could check out? Now that my collection is thinned out I feel like I could squeeze a few more books back in. Have a great weekend everyone!
