Children's Illustrator Miroslav Sasek

I have always loved the vintage children's book illustrators of Miroslav Sasek. He was a Czech born illustrator who lived 1916 - 1980. His series of This Is books is especially charming and a great example of mid-century book illustrations.

I have several of these books listed in my store:
  • This is Greece

  • This is London

  • This is Israel

Here are a few antique Easter postcards and a lovely vintage Easter card that sold out of my store. I love this vintage Easter card with the sweet little angel child.

1920s Christmas Card with Ironer IOU

What an unusual card! This Christmas card has an IOU photo for an ironing machine inside. It sold from my store and I wanted to share the photo with you before deleting it. (I'm going to try to post interesting photos here before deleting ... there are some neat ones I think you would enjoy!)
