For one young collector, the Sunday Funnies meant a pair of scissors and glue.
One page from an enormous scrapbook found at an outdoor weekend flea market. There are hundreds and hundreds of illustrations arranged a week at a time by subject. Others include Inventions, Leaves, Transportation, History, Flags, Famous Men, Famous Women, Birds, Reptiles...a homemade encyclopedia one week at a time.
The Sunday Funnies went color around 1900, and while the strips today receive the most attention, there was a week's worth of work in each edition for the kids. Puzzles, paper dolls, quizzes. Some even included entire dioramas to be assembled.
Each of the miraculous airships here are 2" x 3"
