Small Wonder

One of the books in my stack was a book called Think Small. It’s a 1967 collection of old VW-themed cartoons with profiles and stories from the artists. It’s actually very well done – especially considering they were given out by the dealers.

This one has seen better days. It’s all there and the pages are in good shape – they just aren’t all bound into the book. Some even look like an insect has dined on the edges. It’s probably too rough to be a collectible, but if anyone out there would like to have it… just drop us a note and it’s yours.

“The ultimate luxury is simplicity.”

Leonardo da Vinci

It’s funny. Even though we own very few possessions, it still feels like we have too much stuff and we can still find things to purge.

    I think you missed all your stuff along this year, but now you’re getting used to live with less.

    Best wishes from México.

    Been follwoing your travels for a little while. Great stuff! If you don’t mind dropping it in the mail I’d love to have your copy of Think Small. I’ve got a ’68 Westy… had a ’71 same color as yours years back. If you can, send me an email and I’ll get you my address. Thanks!

    Hi folks;

    Happy Holidays!

    All this talk of Volks literature had me thinking of an old book a friend gave me a while ago…
    ‘The Jokeswagen Book, A Grabbag of Volks Jokes for Volks Folks and Normal People”
    published in 1966, priced at $1.95 hardcover.
    Mostly full of lame jokes and cartoons. But historically hysterical.
