GOLDEN LEGACY, Leonard S. Marcus

How Golden Books Won Children's Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever, and Became an American Icon Along the Way

THE YEAR 2007 marked the 65th anniversary of a bold experiment: the launch of the Little Golden Books during the dark days of World War II. At a time when the literacy rate was not nearly as high as it is now - and privation was felt by nearly all - quality books for children would now be available at a price nearly everyone could afford (25 cents), and sold where ordinary people shopped. "Golden Legacy "is a lively history of a company, a line of books, the groundbreaking writers and artists who created them, the clever mavericks who marketed and sold them, and the cultural landscape that surrounded them.

Hardback in very good, ex-library condition.

Happy to combine postage on multiple trades.

I have HUNDREDS of other books listed for you to browse, including regular low reserve bulk book auctions.

Payment expected within five working days of close of auction.

Pick ups are by arrangement from Avondale, Auckland.
