Sheilah Beckett


In November I picked up a couple big boxes of amazing vintage books and magazines from an estate sale. I still have over a hundred vintages kid's mags that I haven't touched, and a stack of Sears catalogs ( mostly the Christmas ones ) from the 50s and 60s to peruse, but I'm mostly through the kid's books. I've posted a few scans from the second to last Golden Book I had left to read - 1954's wonderful "The Twelve Dancing Princesses", illustrated by Sheilah Beckett, over at my Flickr.

She's my favorite children's book illustrator. Well, her and Bill Peet!

I loved the book, "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" from 1954. Are you selling the book? I would love to have a chance to purchase it.

Hi Susan,

Yes, I still have this book. I hadn't planned on selling it though - sorry.

What a thrill, and memory, to see this image. I searched the net to find and buy this beloved book. Now I'm glad to have the image as well. Thanks for posting.
