How Could I Have Missed This One???

Yesterday, I wrote a post devoted to highlighting some of this year's nonfiction publications. Some were already available, but most had not been released yet. Today, I discovered one that looks absolutely delicious.

Golden Legacy: How Golden Books Won Children's Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever, and Became an American Icon Along the Way by Leonard S. Marcus. Publisher RandomHouse (Golden Books). Will be released (according to Amazon) October 23, 2007. THE YEAR 2007 marks the 65th anniversary of a bold experiment: the launch of the Little Golden Books during the dark days of World War II. At a time when the literacy rate was not nearly as high as it is now - and privation was felt by nearly all - quality books for children would now be available at a price nearly everyone could afford (25 cents), and sold where ordinary people shopped. Golden Legacy is a lively history of a company, a line of books, the groundbreaking writers and artists who created them, the clever mavericks who marketed and sold them, and the cultural landscape that surrounded them.
