Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs: From the Golden Book Encyclopedia
I've collected old kid's books, especially those colorfully illustrated childrens' encyclopedias, for the last twelve years or so. They're fun for the strange things we used to teach children as well as the sometimes wonderful art by the illustrators.

Vintage Golden Book Encyclopedia Repurposed into a Spiral Bound Journal or Sketchbook (2) | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
A journal / sketchbook made from salvaged covers from a Golden Book Encyclopedia (Book 2-Arthur to Blood). The inside pages are a mixture from vintage books in English and foreign languages, watercolor paper, vintage ledger paper, card stock, and braille paper. Either work on the pages as is, letting the original printing on those pages add to the visual texture, or apply a thin layer of gesso first. However you decide to use it, it's a perfect size to slip into your bag for journaling, collaging, sketching or writing wherever you are. Since it it spiral bound, it opens flat making it easy to work in. Approx 7" x 10-1/2" approx 80 mixed pages (40 sheets) Antique Brass coil binding
