The Snack Jar Plan

A fun little information / recipe booklet published by the National Peanut Council, Inc. in 1946, featuring superbly illustrated "Peanut People" (and a creepy peanut owl) doing all the nutty things that peanuts like to do, ie: lifting weights, going to the movies, hoeing, professoring etc. Hmmmm, I never thought to mix peanut butter with cream cheese, I'm actually going to try this-- NOW.

10 Cent Trick

Way back in August 2010 I posted some of my original gumball machine card art (HERE.) Well, I've got more-- and this time the focus is less on tooth decay and more on gag gift tricks that either gross-out, get you all wet, or freak-out mom, etc. After you dig these you can click HERE for even more retro cool grab bag gag art from the AEET Archive!

Dixie Dictionary

Colonel Horsepasture's Guide Book & Dixie Dictionary (1961) is 20+ pages of "...true enlightenment of Dixie Doing's and Southern Sayin's..." or in other words, a side splittin' booklet on the lost art of the southern rebel drawl. Terrifically / brilliantly written and illustrated -- just for you damn yankees-- yes suh, morn 225,000 sold can't be wrong!

Back in September 2010 I posted some lusty 1950's Bill "McCartney" Ward scans HERE, and today I have another dirty dozen for you (someone else uncredited illustrated the great cover art) --from the May 1957 issue of Showgirls #5.
