Since “Y is for Yak” is not finished, I thought I would post one of my vintage picture books. I love to collect ABC, nursery rhyme and fairy tale “linenette” books, mostly from the 1940’s. The books have heavy-weight, textured pages and are usually pretty thin, with around 12 pages although some have as many as 24. Most of them have a credited illustrator (unlike my vintage coloring books). I think it’s so clever how she worked several letters into each picture.
