Vintage Books: it's *not* what you're thinking ...

Hi, hi, hi. 

Occasionally, when casually leafing through one of the old books I've gathered in to my hoard, something stops me in my tracks. 

Sometimes it's the wonderfully retro typography. Sometimes it's the amazing colour schemes of the illustrations. And sometimes ... 

... sometimes it's the splutter-inducing titles of the articles.

Turns out the bangers in question were of the sausage kind:
Still ... might be worth a try anyway.

And as for those old balls:

To be honest though ... considering the book the articles came from:
Maybe I should've known better from the start ....



Various pages from this book appear in my Plundered Pages packs as we speak ... but if you'd like the exact page featured in this post just let me know and I can build it into a custom themed pack for you. 


  1. Er, yes. That is indeed what my Guide uniform looked like. J. likes the hat best - he says it has an air hostess thing he likes!

  2. This has made me smile! Given how things are over here at present, that's a real tribute to you! :)


Thanks for leaving me a comment, asking me a question, sharing your own story or just randomly saying hello.
