Mid century ephemera pack of nine different Pack-O-Fun Scrap Craft Magazines; six are from 1957 and three are from 1958. These beautifully illustrated paper printed magazines feature activities and crafts for children. Each issue is chock-full of great ideas using common household items to manufacture neat and inexpensive arts, crafts and useful items. These mags are fabulous reading for the rediscovery of bygone kid's activities and are still relevant today.
Included issues in this pack are April 1957, May 1957, June-July 1957, August-September 1957, November 1957, December 1957, January 1958, February 1958, March 1958. The only one missing is October 1957 otherwise these would make a perfect sequential 1-year subscription (which, at the time, cost only $1.50 for the full year or 20¢ per issue). Published in Park Ridge, Illinois. Each book measures 5½" by 8½" and contains approx. 32 pages.
Condition: Very fine vintage condition. Pages are yellowing but otherwise free of rips or tears. Someone took dear care of these magazines. One, however, has a slight tear to the cover (March 1958).
