Children’s Books

by Grace Bonney

Before I get started, I thought I would mention that we are having a big Giveaway on Grain Edit to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Were giving away prizes from Matte Stephens, Julia Rothman, Petit Collage and Wayne Pate to name a few. It’s quick, easy and free to enter. You can see all the details here.

Ok, moving on. I love to look at Children’s books from the 1950s and 60s. I love the flat, often 2-3 color illustrations. Today I decided to dig up a children’s book entitled thomas written by Mary Harris and illustrated by Cliff Roberts in 1956. The book tells the story of a young girl and her cat thomas and the adventures/trouble they get into. My copy is in German, but there is an English version as well. This is one of my personal favorites, so I hope you enjoy it.
