My Book House: 1920’s Illustration


Book club friends and readers of this blog often ask about the illustration and format of the older My Book House set. Over the next year we hope to write a series of posts on all of the major printings of the My Book House books and compare them to the Childcraft Books. In the interim, we will post interior photos for the curious.


These photos are from my 1920 My Book House set. In this early printing, the entire series is divided over 6 fat volumes with old fashioned duotone illustration.
