Designed in the 1940’s, this army and navy needle book was designed with imagery from the US military. The front has a navy ship pushing through the open sea. A plane and an American eagle, flying low, are right beside it. Printed on the back of the book is, “Highest Sewing Needles – Diamond Drilled Eyed Sharps,” and then in the margin, “Made in Japan.” The book still contains five needles.
With its vintage font and colorful graphics, the booklet is a charming example of 1940’s-style advertisement.
The exterior of the book is in good vintage condition except the edges are a little worn. The interior has two spots where the top layer of paper has peeled off. Some of the original needles are missing; there are 5 left.
