I've been collecting children's books for quite a while now. I have a great collection of some of my favorite Little Golden Books from when I was very young on our bookshelf at home. I also found a couple of these Junior Deluxe Editions, printed in the 1950's, at a local thrift store a while back. But a couple of days ago I stumbled on a Flickr photo set posted by Scott Lindberg, (who's also admin for a Flickr group featuring their favorite covers from the classic book series), full of some of the most beautiful book covers I've ever seen.
I can't seem to find any information on the designer of the covers of the books; only the inside illustrations are attributed. If anyone has any information regarding the cover design, email me! I'd love to hear about it.
Here are some of my favorites.
