Found this book in Melbourne last weekend and I'm so enjoying it. It's called Golden Legacy - How Golden Books Won Children's Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever, and Became an American Icon along the Way by Leonard S. Marcus.
Have you ever read a Golden Book and wondered when and why it was written? Or drawn to certain titles over the years? Well this books touches on different periods, authors and illustrators...so interesting! I have since realised that I'm drawn to the artist Mary Blair..and a Little H favourite "The Little Fat Policeman" was included in the orientation kit given to every rookie cop on the New York Police Force in 1955.
