This one-of-a-kind book is upcycled from a vintage 1902 edition of "The Book of Joyous Children", by James Whitcomb Riley, illustrated by J. W. Vawter, a humorous look at the life of children. I have included 16 pages from the original book, almost all with illustrations, interleaved between 60 blank sheets of off-white paper. Here's a little excerpt:

"Wild and breathless in their glee--
Lawless rangers of all ways
Winding through lush greenery
Of Elysian vales--the viny,
Bowery groves of shady, shiny
Haunts of childish day.
Spread and read again with me
The Book of Joyous Children."

This would make a great gift for a new parent, a teacher, or anyone who loves vintage children's books!

The blank paper consists of 60 sheets of acid-free, 25% cotton, 24 lb. off-white paper, which is smooth enough to write and sketch upon easily. It's all bound with a sturdy, wire coil binding that allows the book to lie flat. Measures approximately 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" (including wire binding). The book's covers show some wear, which is part of the nature and character you find with a previously loved, recycled book.

The perfect book for use as a travel journal or scrapbook, or to fill with brilliant ideas, doodles, secret thoughts, spontaneous sketches, dream journal, keeping score on game night...?
