More Shadow Stitching aka dede Says, Dede Ogden
5 Dede Ogden More Shadow Stitching aka dede Says
Unknown Privately Printed 2005 Presumed First Soft Cover Fione 16mo - over 5" - 6" Oblong 
This instruction manual caught my eye because I never heard of shadow stitching. From what I gather it is a technique which provides shadowing using stitches already known and the use of thinner thread and room for part of the mesh to show. If you google it you will see beautiful examples. This book is not written in and shows no other defects. It's bound with a plastic spiral and is in excellent condition. The book measures 6" x 8-1/2" and is 1/2" thick. the covers protected by clear plastic both front and back and there is also a surprise in the back. I'm not sure if it came this way, but there appears to be three or four postcards in a plastic bag affixed to the back of the back cover. I think the cards might all be beautiful pictures of the results of this technique. Very nice -- the hearts are on the bag, not inside.

20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft, No Author
8 No Author 20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft
Akron, Ohio Saalfield Publishing 1953 Soft Cover Fime in VG Box 
I grew up in Akron, Ohio home of the old and beloved Saalfield Publishing Company. The company was known for books in boxes such as this one and also its licensing for Shirley Temple books. Saalfield had novels too for older kids, so we never grew out of them until we weren't kids anymore. This particular box is new to me, but I would have loved it. The box says it contains 20 playbooks for drawing, coloring, picture hunts, riddles, connect the dots, games and mazes. Twenty it may have been, but it ended up housing 22 -- no repeats and no coloring. Fun gift! Measures 6" x 9". Books are clean and bright and box is sturdy. One corner is neatly repaired with brown tape.
