A Visual Feast, Brought to You by 50 Watts
The Cubies’ A B C by Mary Mills Lyall and Earl Harvey Lyall (G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1913) via 50watts.com
I first came across 50watts.com about a year ago when I was looking for some images by Japanese illustrator, Takeo Takei. I was blown away. Will Schofield’s blog is an amazing visual resource of illustrated books around the world, (mostly) old and (sometimes) new.
Schofield originally started the blog under another name in 2007. You can read more about Will and how he started 50 Watts here and in Steven Heller’s blog post for The Atlantic.
