Like a bad 'ol black putty tat, a few other vintage Halloween finds recently crossed my path, the first being a tally card for a festive couples party game (complete with a score sheet inside and a place for totals and score winnings on the back cover.) That cover art is just sooo great though, I can't decide if I like the cat or the witch better. Or the smirky cauldron! And secondly, a rather awesome midcentury trick or treat candy bag made by Beistle, who, as everyone knows by now, created some of the most iconic Halloween decorations of all time.
Bats and owls, and kids in costume, --oh my! We're exactly one week away from the big day, and with lots more on the way too, so stay tombed...
The vintage art of these are frameable stuff to me!
Is the witch cover embossed? That would be my favorite part, that sadly, I can't participate in!
I'd vote for the witch, the evil smile, the upturned shoes, the slightly off center buckle, the pinky -- it's a great image. Love the tail on the cat.
The bag is fun, and another example of how to work with two colors (not counting the background white) to make a stand out image.
Whoa, you don't always see a white cauldron. It's like she's making her potion in the toilet like a jail bird.
I too love the two-color paper bag. Mostly for that sweet uzumaki hand lettering, but also because I don't know what that kid in the middle is dressed up as. Hula Yeti?
Love that bag, but the expression on the pirate kid's face tells me he's about to be offered up as a sacrifice in honor of Samhain.
A few more fun halloween posts to go as we get nearer to the big day.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, everyone :)
