FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #58
One of my favorite artists is Jim Flora and I've never been lucky enough to find anything with his artwork in the wilds of antique stores or flea markets. Last week I was lucky and struck a Flora piece of gold in the form of a 1953 Columbia Records calendar! From the 1940s to the 1970s Flora's whimsical artwork graced countless record album covers, children's books and magazine covers. My introduction to Flora was from one of my favorite books as a child, The Great Green Turkey Creek Monster. Now I have the pleasure of adding this gem to my Flora collection that is now two. For more info on Jim Flora, visit the official Jim Flora website. Enjoy the calendar scans!
