Art Journal 1876

Just Added to the Animation Resources Library: Art Journal 1876

If they sound interesting by the title, sometimes I blind buy books on eBay. If they are under-described or not photographed well, I can get some real bargains. This is one of them... A bound volume of Art Journal magazine from 1876. The quality of the steel engravings is superb. These are of pretty girls, but there are incredible images of children, animal drawings, architecture, interior design, pottery and mythological subjects too. If you are interested, I'll photograph some more plates and share them. I've added a link to a larger size image on each picture because Blogger doesn't do these justice.

Helen Kane Autograph

A new one for my autograph collection... Helen Kane the inspiration for Betty Boop.

By the way, this photo refers to an old saying,
"You can catch a bird by pouring salt on its tail."
