Children's Album Covers

When it comes to vintage illustration, hands down children's albums from the 1960s have thecutest artwork. Children are rosy-cheeked, smiley-faced and similar to paper dolls: flat, uniform in size and features, and only distinguishable by their different hair color or style. They're happy and playful. They skip and dance. This artwork just makes me smile. There is such innocence and sweetness in these children; such purity and simplicity.
