Noteworthy typography

As promised, here is the first instalment of stuff I picked up at the UWA Save the Children book sale. There's still another 40 pictures to go, and that's just the sheet music! Next is books, then the records on Black Soup!

Most of these are from the 50s. It's easy to date them because sheet music has a copyright date on every page. Some of these are even before 1920! I did end up buying most of them, I just couldn't help myself, they were sooooo pretty! As a result of this book sale, I'm actually going to start collecting vintage sheet music. Because they're excellent examples of illustration and typography from different eras — not just because they look pretty! That would be shallow.
