Old textbooks





The loveliest design I've seen in an inch square. These tiny icons appear on the reverse of each textbook in the Science Library and Nature Library series by LIFE, and date from 1961-67. To see the almost-complete collection (I think we're missing one or two), visit my Flickr set.

Wow, these are just gorgeous. I love the texture of the canvas cover showing through as much as the detailed icons.
