EARTH AND SKY SCHOOL SCIENCE CHARTS = MID-CENTURY ILLUSTRATED AWESOMENESS

FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #50

I was going to save today’s Flea Market Friday for this fall when all the kiddies go back to school. But gosh, this 1960's elementary school poster chart set is just too cool for school!


First, just visualize an elementary school room sometime in the mid-60's. In my mind’s eye, I can see these posters hanging underneath the green cursive alphabet border. I see a classroom of kids practicing their duck and cover routines. I see lil’ Jimmy picking his nose. I see... oops, sorry, my mind’s eye was wandering.

Ok, enough with the rambling, I’ll let the fine “retro kid” artwork speak for itself. Enjoy!













These posters are so wonderful that I raise my bottle of Elmer’s glue along with a jumbo pencil and a box of crayons with the sharpener in back to the artist, Cynthia Amrine! You can see more of Cynthia Amrine's artwork here including two more school poster sets.

I've been collecting schoolbooks from my elementary years (mid - late 70's) and have also found some 60's textbooks. Looks like I have lots of scanning to do!
