I found this 1967 book on puberty in a thrift store and thought the illustrations were so great that I couldn't pass it up. I knew I wanted to do something with it but couldn't quite think of what exactly until last week I realized I could make really excellent envelopes out of the pages! I wish I had more pen pals because I would love to mail these out.
I'm also really into this and have been looking for more crap books with great illustrations so turn into stationary. I've got my fingers crossed for kitty and dinosaur envelopes!

Ha ha!!  I just love imagining the wording to go with some of those!  I particularly like the scary metal claw attempting to pull the baby out.  So funny and a great idea!

Oh I know!!! The birth illustrations were SO GOOD because instead of drawing the shape or silhouette of a woman, it's like this weird amorphous blob so it looks like the baby comes out of a strange hill or something. So silly.

Most of it was pretty to-the-point but there was some serious reinforcement of gender rolls that were pretty great, MEN WORK, WOMEN RAISE BABIES, hence all the pictures of husband and wife.

I think they used the same drawings/illustrations when I went through sex ed in fifth grade. Somewhere around...1989?

These are hilarious! Love them!
