When Ginny, a librarian in Seattle, emailed me out of the blue with the subject line "want books" I of course emailed back "yes please!" boy, I had no idea what amazingness I was in for. She’s got my number!
Lokomotywa, a Polish children’s book of poetry by Julian Tuwim, illustrated by Jan Marcin Szancer, 1938. Of course we’re huge into trains around here, and the colors and illustrations are so beautiful. I love this book. more photos from the train poem here and here
there are two other poems in the book, here’s an illustration from "Ptasie Radio"
Ginny also sent this great Funny Jungleland flip book put out by Kelloggs in 1909
and even more! these amazing beautiful vintage buttons, a great retro kitchen towel and a super fun vintage casserole book too. Thank you so much Ginny! I feel so so lucky that these beautiful things have come to live with us.
