A smattering of vintage/retro books I bought last week

The last book is an eye popping stunning example of early '70's design and illustration. Trust me, you will be amazed when you see it in it's entirety.

Illustrations from 'The White Hen'

Art this good is wasted on the young.

Why did she cut off her nose?

I bought 15 kid's picture books, about 10 grown up novels and non fiction books, and about 15 pulp paperbacks yesterday at a local friends of the library book sale. I also picked up 6 of these as well:And then I went to another place I buy vintage and retro stuff and I picked up 4 Playboy's from 1966/'67.

I'll be adding new stuff here as I scan it. And as you can imagine, I'll be burning up my scanner over the next few weeks.
