Fun Vintage Board Game Book






Good Sunday Morning Folks,
I found this great little book at Barnes and Noble last night for $4.98. It is filled with the greatest colorful photos of vintage board games. I took some photos and wanted to show you. It is written by Nina Chertoff and Susan Khan.
This one is from an old Monopoly game. Look at the cool old playing pieces.
This is a cool Candyland game. Sorry about the flash. I am still learning all of this blog stuff which includes taking great pics W/O the flash. Anyway, I can see these pages getting cut up for collages in my journal.


I think this is an older version of Clue. This book is so full of color and some of the strangest games. They show some that were popular in the late 1880's. 144 pages of great eye candy. Yum!!

I had a crazy, crazy week at work this last week and did not even look at my journal at all, so I am going to try to work in it today after I figure out what is wrong with my Blackberry and why it won't accept my new password for my work email. UGH!! Besides it is raining and I am not wanting to venture out. And I am enjoying my new FASTER internet. WOW!!

Have a great Sunday!

Cool book. You could probably scan some pics to use in your art.
