GIRLS IN SERVICE PAINT BOOK (1943) Coloring book with art by Pru Herric

$500.00

Racine, Wisconsin: Whitman Publishing Company, 1943. Vintage original coloring book, die-cut pictorial wrappers, 15 x 11″ (38 x 28 cm.), 48 pp. Modest wear along the spine, but colors of covers are still very fresh, and contents are clean (and untouched).

A WWII-era coloring book honoring American women’s contributions to the war effort, with portrayals of women serving as nurses, truck drivers, army photographers, even as weathercasters.

This appears to be an exceedingly scarce book. I can find no example of it in OCLC, nor any indication of it having appeared at auction.
