I was tickled pink the other day when I came across a book with these wonderful travel themed swimwear illustrations.I've decided I'm going back today to rescue this little gem as it was in one of my favorite second hand shops. I am so hopeful it's still there as I'd love to frame some of these for my office.
These quick pics were taken with my camera phone while I was there last so at least I did save something of them. Hopefully the rescue pays off! Enjoy!

Doing research this morning I came across an image from Claire McCardell, an all time favorite designer of mine, which I dont recall seeing before. Caption partially reads" pique bathing suit costume with its inseparable sunbonnet." It makes me happy when I see animage and I know exactly who the designer is. Claire has played with the 'sunbonnet' or scarf/headress treatment throughout her career.
Here's another from her that sports something similar, this one from 1954. I'll take one of each please!
