In all my flea market and antique store trips over the years I always ignored the golden books. Most are from the nineties and I never thought about finding pretty graphics in them, until a couple of weeks ago! I discovered such a lovely golden book I could hardly contain my love for it! It's called Nursery Songs from 1942. I researched the illustrator named Corinne Malvern and discovered that she illustrated several lovely golden books.
I am now on a quest to find them all!
This is a golden book illustrated by Corinne Malvern that I always admired for it's beauty as a child.
This was my favorite Corinne Malvern golden book as a child! Doctor Dan! I had a rough, old copy of it found at a garage sale and because I loved it so much, my Mom found a newer copy of it at Wal Mart. I loved that book so much! Even as a child I remember my Mom giving me that beautiful new copy with two real band aids glued to the first page. I never took the band aids off. I wanted to keep the book in perfect condition!
I ran across this copy of Heidi last weekend, illustrated by Corinne Malvern to add to my collection.
Now every time I walk into a flea market I am on the look out for golden books!
I hope I am lucky enough to collect them all someday!
Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey
