Souvenir Friday- 1959 Autograph Album

One of my favorite pieces in my collection is this autograph book. The front cover features a very cartoony Tinkerbell adding her pixie dust magic to the word Autographs.

Although the front cover is nice, the back cover is fantastic with great 1950s illustration style art for the Submarine Voyage, Skyway, Autopia and Mad Tea Party. These illustrations are also used on a large size scrap book that was also sold in 1959.

The interior does feature a Walt Disney autograph (unfortunately printed, but still a nice touch.)

Hi Do you have a high resolution scan of the cover tinkerbel? I would like to use this for a birth card illustration?
