Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, January 27, 2018

This book has not been rated.

I found this board-book-for-grownups at a local thrift shop. It's a collection of pin-up images from a series of trading cards published in the 1940s and '50s, each with a quote on the back. (The captions appear in both English and French.) Some of the quotes are poignant - one from Marilyn Monroe says "A girl doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her," a sentiment that might have served her well in real life... More lighthearted: Tallulah Bankhead's "It's the good girls who keep diaries, the bad girls never have the time." And sensible, as in Dita Von Teese's "You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be someone who doesn't like peaches."

I left this book outside the Bonfire restaurant at 950 Elm St., near the amusing rear-end-shaped bar stools (showing denim-clad legs, bikini-clad legs - and horse-legs!). Hope the finder enjoys the book!
