vintage picture books
I thrifted the coolest books the other day. The first is a 1959 edition of the National Geographic Society’s book on the National Parks. It’s got rad old-school images of mid century American family leisure, including the iconic image of the Yellowstone begging bear. I debated keeping it but I’d rather someone else enjoy it. Apparently, it’s a rare find. You can check it out on my Etsy, if you’re interested.
Th other is an oversized book of aerial photographs of Los Angeles taken in the 1970s, with awesome images of the coast, the Watts Towers and sky-views of west-side neighborhoods like Beverly Hills. It’s for sale, too.
