I love these so much. I got them at my friend Eileen's shop about 2 1/2 years ago. I think they're so cool just from an ephemera standpoint, but leave it to finding new projects to create for a collage workshop I'm teaching to get those creative gears in motion.
The box doesn't have a copyright but based on the fact that they mention the Elson Basic Readers Primer, I'm going to guess that this set is from the 1930's. The font on the cards tells me that, too.
Here is the latest collage I've made, and I've FINALLY gotten around to using one of the cards! I have to say, I'm pleased with how this one turned out. And as you can see, I've got LOTS of ways I can make new collages! :D
I'm going to have a pile of these available for collaging during the workshop, so I can't wait to see what transpires!
