THE GIRLS' MERRY BOOK

Front cover
Spine
Back cover
These are some images from The Girl's Merry Book, a girls' annual published circa 1935.

LINE DRAWINGS - here are some of the best

 
Published as a large format hardback book by The Capella Press of Southampton, UK, this has some of the stiffest, thickest pages I've ever come across - each page is more like cardboard! Very unfortunate that the paper is very acidic as the pages have yellowed badly and are brittle.

4 COLOUR PLATES




So charming!
