This should take a few people back - Vol 1, no 1 of the Puffin Post from 1967. If you joined the Puffin Club you would get a Puffin Post once a quarter - something very special to receive through the letter box. On the back cover - some of the latest puffin books published, inside - articles, stories, reviews, competitions, cartoons and illustrations, & general food for the imagination.

The Puffin Club was founded by the late Kaye Webb, editor of Puffin Books from 1961 to 1979, who did a wonderful job of making good quality, affordable childrens books accessible to the post-war generations. (Info found on SevenStories - the centre for children's books)

1903 cartoon originally in Fliegende Blatter. The text translates: The use of the motor car in arts & crafts. Painting the ceiling of a large modern room. Cartoon by R Greifs.

This was reprinted in a book from the 70s called "A child of six could do it" - a collection of cartoons about Modern Art. Front cover over HERE.
