Seventies City Celebrations

This morning I scanned the double spread pages of

of which this is the book jacket,

and this, the Title Page and Frontispiece.

As will be apparent, my scanner cannot take the entire width of the book so I have, perforce, trimmed each side taking care to nip off the less important elements.

The small volume was published in 1975 and therefore contains much nostalgia for one who grew up in London from 1942.

In order not to swamp readers today, the second half of the pages will be held over until tomorrow. All can be enlarged by accessing the gallery.


  1. Oh, my gosh! What a treasure! What wonderful and fun poems…the subjects, the motion, the rhyming…these would be fun to read to little children! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh, Mr. Keeping! Your artwork wows me again and again! Love the colors, the movement, the techniques, the ’70’s feel! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hard to pick a fave poem from these…but I do love Witch! ๐Ÿ™‚
    (((HUGS))) and thank you for sharing this book with us! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It seems to be a delightful compilation containing Charles Keepingโ€™s illustrations. I look forward to receiving more inputs.
