Andy Warhol in Best in Children’s Books

Best in Children's Books #15 table of contents

Thanks to the Atlantic, I now know that one of the children’s books I’ve been hanging onto for what seems like forever has illustrations by Andy Warhol. In the 1950s, a series of collected stories for kids called Best in Children’s Books had six volumes with Warhol illustrations. Numbers 5, 7, 15, 21, 27, and 33, to be exact. I have a bunch of these books—around 25 or so—but only one with Warhol art. I’m the proud owner of number 15.

The article in the Atlantic notes that these books are pretty easy to find and are fairly inexpensive, and it includes a preview of what you’ll get if you buy Best in Children’s Books #27. If you want to see the much more colorful illustrations that are in #15, check out the scans below.
