This one-of-a-kind book is upcycled from a 1950 edition of "Surprise For Sally and Other Stories", by Ethel Crowninshield, pictures by Corinne Malvern. This was one of the early Little Golden Books, and has three stories about children, as well as two songs. I have included the entire original book interleaved between 60 blank sheets of white paper.

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

The blank paper consists of 60 sheets of recycled, acid-free, 24 lb. white paper, which is smooth enough to write upon easily, but with a bit of a tooth to it, which makes it great for sketching as well. It's all bound with a sturdy, wire coil binding that allows the book to lie flat. Measures approximately 6" x 8" (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 to fill with brilliant ideas, doodles, recipes, secret thoughts, spontaneous sketches, travel scrapbook, poetry...?
