A Shelf of Old Children's Books

a shelf of old children's books, including several John Martin's Big Book

This is a shelf of books in our studio, waiting to get refiled, or maybe filed for the first time. On the right are several volumes of one of our favorite series, the John Martin's Big Books. These are full of wonderful illustrations, games, borders, etc. We don't find as much use for them as we would like because they are in black and white, sometimes with an one added color, and the modern viewer seems prejudiced in favor of full color.
