Vintage reading posters

I've mentioned my family's love of libraries before, so I suppose it's only natural that these "yay, reading!" posters are making me all sorts of nostalgic this morning. These mid-century gems are so sweet and child-like, aren't they? I wonder what a typical plugged-in teen would think of these, especially the ones about how the books are arranged...HA!

If I ever have a home library one day, I'm definitely hanging a few of these on the wall. They'd even be perfect for a kid's room or an elementary school library...ahhh, the possibilities are endless! xoxo

P.S. More library-themed posts, including a little librarytheatre turned library and library engagement.

  1. Oh my, I've never seen these before. So super cute! These will be darling framed in your home. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. After losing it during too many years of graduate school, I have recently rediscovered how much I LOVE books. I love reading, writing, all of it. One of my favourite things in the world is to just be in a bookstore or library and I'm terrified that one day ebooks will take over from paper copies :)

  3. I love these! The library was my happy place as a kid, and I rediscovered it in a big way as a college student–I could hole up for HOURS looking through scores and reading books!

  4. LOVE the idea of hanging them in a library, they are so cute!


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
