Remember that great trunk that I found at my one 127 stop? It had a TON of papers in it. Most of them were common records of every day life--receipts, bills of sales, policies, report cards, etc. I love that kind of ephemera, but they don't make for exciting blog posts.
There were a couple of more interesting items, however.
A gaggle of dwarves, for example. Why these two and why multiple copies, I couldn't say.
|I would LOVE to have a full set of all seven like this!|
On the other end of the spectrum, there was a battered vintage girlie pin-up calendar with these wonderful illustrations! Here are three of the tamer ones. I love that some of them include pencil roughs.
There's a little verse on each page, along with a calendar for the given month. I can't find any indication as to the year, however. I also can't find any info on the artist. The signature is hard to make out. It looks like "Mac Pherson" but that could be just a last name. It could also be "Marc Thompson." I'm having no luck pulling anything up on anything I might decipher from the signature.
I love Miss December's strategically placed bow!
There were also some really awesome cards in the trunk, but they're for another post.
