Collecting vintage books for boys

My two-year old loves books so much that he sleeps with at least one in his bed. It’s something I am more than happy to encourage, especially when it comes to vintage boy books. These two thrift finds started our collection; I just love the simplicity of the illustrations, the nostalgia and the optimistic view of the the future that they seem to represent.

Who wouldn’t want to be sitting on that steam train watching the yachts sailing by?

And I love the inclusion of the flying platform, as though we all would be traveling that way in the future. A little research says only six were ever made!
