Where's your Sparkle and Spin?

Call me nostalgic but vintage children's books have always held a special magic and charm for me, taking me back to my own childhood spent immersed in beautifully-illustrated books (which were the norm rather than the an exceptional award winner like these days.)

Ann and Paul Rand's "Sparkle and Spin" is bold and eye-catching, different from the highly detailed illustrations I was used to. Still, I would have loved this. It's from 1957 yet it's timelessly wonderful, like all the best children's books.
