I posted last week about one of my favourite annuals, June, another favourite was Princess, my mum had a couple of the earliest editions of this girls annual from 1961 and 1963.  The stories and features were similar to June, although there were more how-to’s and craft articles which I loved.  Look at these back to back articles about potato printing and lino printing from the 1963 editon.

The articles themselves are just text based, as opposed to the more usual picture instructions you tend to see today, but the examples of the prints are great.

The lino printing article is my favourite, the robin Christmas card and still life image especially.  I also love how the titles to the articles have also been printed in their respective techniques, it’s a nice little touch.
