vintage arabian nights book

July 7, 2010

I mentioned Juliet's latest Aladdin/Jasmine obsession yesterday and in case you are wondering, yes, I am STILL Jasmine. (Don't be too jealous.)

I wanted to share a few pictures of a beautiful copy of Arabian Nights that I picked up a few months ago. The story of Aladdin and his magic lamp is in it and I look forward to reading it with Juliet when she is older. 

I was drawn to the gorgeous illustrations found on the cover and throughout the book. Illustrated by Earle Goodenow, this book is a 1946 edition from the Illustrated Junior Library. If this book is any indication of the other books in the collection, I hope I find a lot more of these!

The Arabian Nights (Illustrated Junior Library)

Do you have any of the books in this collection? I'd love to hear more about them if anyone does!

My posts might be a bit sparse this week as I am spending most of my evenings working on nursery projects like sewing pillow covers (that's what I did tonight!) 

I'm also trying to add a few tabs to the top of my blog with lists of my crafts and favorite authors, illustrators, etc. Nothing too exciting, but I think it will make my blog more organized and easier to navigate. So, I apologize for the lack of books this week, but I'll be back with more next week!
