More Lovely Illustrations


These are the beautiful illustrations of
Eduardo Garcia Benito, 1891-1981

I want to live in this world!




Don't you love these?



Gorgeous!


I haven't found any of these magazines at the flea market yet! My fantasy is that I am at the estate sale of an old fashionista, and she kept all of her fashion magazines in dry boxes, in a non-weird smelling basement. A girl can dream, can't she?

Your fantasy IS a great one--I hope it comes true:) I've always found that mothball smell comes with good treasure troves.
