Little Golden Book of Manners


Little Golden Book of Manners
Originally uploaded by CalamityJon.

Found this at the Value Village about a year ago, but just got around to scanning it. Classic pre-BusyTown artwork from the inimitable Richard Scarry, in a book of obnoxiously anal retentive etiquette reminders evidently regurgitated from rote memory by put-upon grade schoolers. Poor kids, the rule about when to remove your hat was probably sufficient to spark nervous breakdowns in half a generation.

The set, containing the whole book, is here.
