Leonard Weisgard Update

Previously featured here last November, its time to follow-up with more vintage illustrations from Leonard Weisgard. The first five images are from the hard to find classic Little Golden Book from 1951, Pantaloon, written by Kathryn Jackson. The next three are from Pelican Here, Pelican There, which was also written by Weisgard and published in 1948.

Thanks, Eric! I definitely need to start working on a L. Weisgard section for my bookshelf.

It's great to see ephemera like this in the spotlight. The items I feature on my blog dovetail nicely with this post. Just wanted to say I enjoyed seeing this featured on your blog. Very interesting. Nice work.
