"Golden Legacy: 80 Years of Original Art from Golden Books

The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature exhibits, tours, collects, preserves, and promotes original art from the finest children’s literature. The center's vision is to inspire and empower children to read and be creative. This exhibition turns the spotlight on Golden Books. In 1942, the first full years of American involvement in World War II, a groundbreaking line of children’s picture books arrived on store shelves to cheer and comfort a nation and revolutionize the business of juvenile publishing forever. Fueled by the bold application of mass-market sales and distribution techniques to a sleepy backwater industry, Golden Books retailed for a fraction of the cost of traditional children’s books and could be found almost anywhere that young parents shopped: at five-a-dimes, drugstores, and supermarkets.
