In Print: Cookie Jar on the Cover
So, I'm working my way through all sorts of stuff I've collected over the years and selling on eBay. Partly to make money to put towards my Merry Mushrooms collection and partly because it's time to let others enjoy these things.
As I was photographing a stack of Sweet Valley Twins books, a favorite childhood book series, I gasped. Then, grabbing this particular book, I went directly to my bewildered husband and told him, "Look, look what's on the cover behind Elizabeth!" He remarked that now I have the next blog entry. And here is it!
Sweet Valley Twins #18 Center of Attention was published in April 1988, mere months after Merry Mushrooms were last offered in the Sears catalogs. They were immensely popular until the end and were found in kitchens around the world. Perhaps it's not a stretch to imagine that the cover artist, James Mathewuse, had a Merry Mushrooms cookie jar or canister set in his own kitchen or prop collection.
