Jazz Songbooks from Leeds Music: Part I (1940s)
I'm a huge vintage music collector, mainly because I'm a musician and either find a use for it or at least preserve it, but also because I love the vintage design on some of the covers. I'm particularly fond of these covers that Leeds Music did in the 1940s for a series of jazz songbooks. Part I of my collection are these two warm-up books. They all appear to have the same illustrator as well, signed simply, "Holley". Enjoy, and click through for full-sized scans. Also, if this kind of thing interests you, visit my other blog, Collecting Sheet Music.
