I found this book that contained a full year of a magazine called Home Garden from 1946. Because the issues are bound, they’re in perfect shape and it’s fun to look at the ads.

Each issue has two or three spreads of these beautiful illustrations, which I thought I would tear out to frame…

…until I realized that they’re all of common garden pests! So beautifully illustrated, but I’m not sure anyone would want them hanging in their house.

Leilani An amazing find! I’d keep it as is, it’s a great collection. The illustrations are creepy but beautiful. 🙂
