Vintage ABC Picture Book


Hello friends!
I wanted to share a sweet vintage childrens book with you today!
This is a ABC Picture Book by Merrill publishing.


It's from 1942. It's pretty torn and ripped,
but has several sweet graphics.


I can't find the illustrators name, but I think that it was
 written on one of the missing page corners.


I love the sweet styles!
So cute to print up and use on cards and tags!


Wishing you happiness, Lindsey

I saw this book's illustrations credited to a Florence Salter online somewhere. Very cute!

Very sweet. The faces of the children do look like the Florence Salter paper-dolls I have seen.
