Welcome to the Colorful Owl Boutique. We collect vintage and antique childrens books and puzzles, many of which are rare books, collectible books, antiquarian books or unique books. They range in subject from vintage pop-up books and antique poetry volumes to out-of-print magazines and more. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world.
More often than not, children love books. But often that love translates to books appearing well-loved, as well. Crayon scribbles, torn or missing pages, crumpled bits, Popsicle stains and the like can leave a book a tattered, sorry version of its former self. But booksellers on the colorful owl find the cream of the crop, the real gems among the abused copies, somehow left unscathed by eager little fingers, and describe them in detail.
The creativity, color and design variation of books is showcased better in children's books than perhaps any other genre. With bright patterns, gorgeous cover design and often fantastic illustration, these are books meant to excite the eyes as well as the mind. From the 20th century and earlier, enjoy these beautiful, collectible children's books.
