See and Say & The Ward-o-Matic

How did I not know about The Ward-o-Matic until now?!? I just discovered JunkCulture, too (see their button in my right column). Whenever a mind-blowing discovery such as these two occur, I feel shaken (not stirred) to the core and kind of like, “How did my life exist prior to knowing this?!” That’s exactly how I feel about stumbling upon illustrator (and retro-connoisseur) Ward Jenkins’ blog and website. AND he’s the husband of HulaSeventy?!? WTF?!? How am I so out of the loop?!? What the hell have I been doing with myself?!?

Anyway, thanks to The Ward-o-Matic, I found these little gems: images of Antonio Frasconi‘s illustrations from the children’s book See and Say: A Picture Book in Four Languages (1955). You’re welcome.







More illustrations and a lovely feature on Antonio Frasconi and See and Say (his first book!) on The Ward-o-Matic HERE.
