Storybook Friday...ABC

Picture Book ABC.  
Published by Merrill Co. in 1947. 
 Illustrated by the amazing Vivian Robbins.  

Another full size book at an astonishing 15 by 11 inches.  

The color goes from corner to corner.

These are the images that promote the past and all that they did.

Remembering details and dreams that so many of us long to find and recapture in our own homes.

Meet me at Corey's for another week of...

Love it!! Hmmm... Is Vivian Robbins another name for Vivian (VIV) Trillow Smith? The Hallmark artist? The little people in your illustrations look very much the same as some of my paperdolls. (Take a look at my paperdoll pages ... See the Little Women dolls and the Dolls From the Land of Make Believe... and then let me know if you think it's her.)

Wishing you nothing but the best for 2012, Renee!

Another beautiful book. I absolutely love the image of the little girl with the iron. I could find several to frame from this book!

Corey said...

Love, love, love this book! Yes, the illustrations remind me of the Hallmark girls, like GardenofDaisies mentioned. I always think of framing pages from books (I used to be a custom framer), and these would be so cute in a nursery or playroom!

That is such a sweet book. I'm going antiquing today and I am hoping to find some cute little books just like that. Wish me luck . . . Instead of partying last night my husband and I made a nice dinner at home and watched Miracle on 34th Street. I'm in good shape to wander around for hours looking for treasures. Happy new year to you Renee, I hope it is a great one!

Happy New Year Renee! I'm hoping to get back to posting and visiting now that most of the excitement of the holidays has calmed down. I had to tell you that I remember that set of Hallmark cards...aren't they cute?
Cheers to you as we start a New Year of crafting fun!

The graphics in that book are so darned cute! I especially love the farmer..who looks more like a grandpa...riding the horse. I got so tickled when I saw that one, I had to laugh out loud. LOL...see?
