How to put your thoughts on paper

January 25, 2009 Leave a comment

My grandmother went in to hospice a week or two ago, and being as I took interest in the subject, she’s given me the collection of genealogy paperwork she’s built up over the years (and there’s a ton of it).  Amongst the birth, marriage, and death certificates, she had stashed all sorts of other papers, including recipes, poems, and this gem:  a booklet written by Theodore Irwin for the General Motors personnel staff entitled How to put your thoughts on paper.

I absolutely love the art style in this book, and the pointers it has towards writing are good too.  I’ve scanned it and posted it to flickr so that you may enjoy it also.  It was written in 1959, and I haven’t been able to find a renewal for it’s copyright, so I believe it to be in the public domain now.  If it is not, let me know and I’ll take it down.  Click on the front cover for the flickr set, or go past the jump for clickable links to each page.  Oh, and as for the poems and recipes, stay tuned.  As I try to get all of this stuff organized, I will be posting some of them here.

Saw this on Boing Boing, and it’s too good not to pass on.  Color Wars 2008 has a post called YoungMe/MeNow where people take pictures of themselves as children and try to recreate them as adults. Link
