Wonder Boy Tom Sawyer, Men's Fashions and You tubes!

First view this actual footage of David O Selznick's Adventures of Tom Sawyer 1938OPEN LINK! ....

...then reminisce further with this 1955 Wonder Book Adventures of Tom SawyerOPEN LINK! with actual black and whites on the inside jackets, from the very same footage!

This easy to read for all ages, but geared to children from about 8 and up, is in perfect condition. It is soft bound and remarkably shows very little ware.Copyrighted 1955, the lively illustrations, which are on every page, are 2 toned black and mauve. The inside jackets show actual black and white photographs: Scenes from David O. Selznick’s Technicolor Production of Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer. There is a small illegible date stamp on the front cover. The newsprint type paper does show some yellowing. The cover and back is in full color. With 64 pages of fun adventure, it is amazing how not one page is crimped or marked on or otherwise showing wear! Even the spine is in very good condition. MAC always pays your shipping!!

Next I want to share with you another You Tube Video I found. It is a hoot! Vintage Fashion Newsreel: Men's Fashion 1954OPEN LINK! Why am I showing you this? Well it seemed the perfect segway for my next item newly posted 1946 Men’s Hand Knit Classics – Ayr Scotch Wools Knitting Pattern BookOPEN LINK! I love the vintage look on a man! You can get started on your Christmas knitting! Yeah right! Really more importantly, since this little book is getting very tattered...after 62 years of use it really should be preserved and placed on display it is sooo classic.

Well that's all for now...I appreciate your interest. If you are willing you can subscribe on the right at "My Creative Followers"
