Yep, the cute booklet art just keeps coming, as we see here in this neat little "how to" guide from 1963 on growing and blooming tropical flowers in your own home. And ok, this post is actually called African Violets, --I thought African Violence might sound more exciting and possibly even pull in bigger google hits! Anyway, this 30+ page guide covers every aspect of this beautiful purple petaled plant and the proper care for it: origins, fertilizing, watering, transplanting, diagnosing troubles, pest control, varieties, etc. Annnnd I'm sure someone out there is going to have a problem with the cartoony African native illustrations in this guide, (I actually think they're pretty adorable), and the fabulously designed white woman determined to bring a taste of the jungle to her home is just a flat-out heartbreaker with those eye lashes! xoxox!
