Aren't these illustrations wondrous? Although they depict a time long ago when kids actually had recess, arts and crafts and a bus to catch, the illustrations themselves are timeless. They come from the book A Day of Autumn, written by Betty Miles and illustrated by Marjorie Auerbach. And yes, the time was 1967. See more of these delightful illustrations over at My Vintage Book Collection, a wonderful blog resource for vintage picture books by Mallory McInnis, who also runs the Elwood & Eloise vintage bookshop on Etsy.
