Classic Cars of the Fifties (Dover History Coloring Book)

Americans have always loved their cars — and at no other time in automotive history were they more appreciated and enjoyed than during the postwar 1950s. People clamored for new cars, and auto manufacturers obliged with designs that conveyed power and "Jet-Age" styling.
Illustrator Bruce LaFontaine portrays the exciting cars of this period in a collection spotlighting the sleek 1950 Mercury two-door sedan; a luxurious 1952 Cadillac four-door sedan; a 1953 Buick Skylark convertible with chrome wire wheels; and the rocket-nosed 1954 Studebaker Starliner two-door coupe; as well as the following: 1955 Pontiac Starchief convertible; 1955 Mercury Montclair hardtop; 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop; 1957 Corvette convertible; 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II; 1958 Chevrolet Impala convertible; 1958 Ford Edsel sedan; 1959 Buick Electra 225 convertible; and 18 other impressive, ready-to-color models.
Attractively rendered in precise detail, these handsome images will thrill coloring book fans and car lovers alike.

Golden Legacy: The Story of Golden Books (Deluxe Golden Book)

Back in print, the fascinating history of Little Golden Books, in celebration of their 75th anniversary in 2017! With a Foreword by Eric Carle.

Eminent children's historian Leonard Marcus' Golden Legacy chronicles the fascinating story of the creation, marketing, and worldwide impact of Little Golden Books, the most popular children's books of all time. Launched during the dark days of WWII, Golden Books such as The Poky Little Puppy were an instant sensation. Hallmarked by their superlative quality yet affordable to nearly all, they changed the cultural landscape and mirrored our changing postwar culture: the powerful influence of television, the post-Sputnik renaissance in American science education, and the birth of the civil rights movement. Lavishly illustrated with the iconic Golden Book covers and colorful artwork  generations of children have pored over, Golden Legacy is a compelling tale of mavericks, innovators, and renowned authors and illustrators. . . a stirring celebration of the humble books in which we scrawled our names, with the cardboard cover and the shiny gold-foil spine.
