A miniature book from 1943, one of a series autolithographed by Trekkie Ritchie during WW2. Some have labelled these as 'shelter books' as they were easily portable during air raids. 2d old money, less than 1p today!

- mickmanning.rcaLovely; can we see a spread please ?
- prelovedofbrightonHow lovely
- helenmfarrar2d for a book! Hard to believe, but still not cheap when they were published and printed on precious paper during war time.
- pennytasksProbably equivalent to the cheap "Quick Reads" we can buy these days.
- designfortodayI believe they were printed in editions of 50,000 at the time, when Penguin Books cost 9d. Astonishingly hard to find now as they were seen as disposable then @pennytasks @helenmfarrar
- pennytasksI've never seen one @designfortoday - something to keep my eye open for!
- estandiaguadalupeEsta increible
