A look at some of the artwork from this vintage activity book from the 70s that I found. 
I've always been fascinated with connect the dots artwork. It was always fun to do but you could clearly see what the image was.

Oops! Someone did this page.

I know when the pages are used that's supposed to be a bad thing. But when I see that some kid drew on the pages years ago it makes me think about what they were thinking at the time they did it? Especially in art books. Did they ever grow up to draw? Do they remember the book they did this in? 

Yeah I know that's super corny, but think about it ok!

I just realized that none of the artwork in the book matches the style that was on the cover at all! Why would there be a different artist for the cover than there was for the contents of the book itself?

I'd be curious to know how long it took for the artist to do this book and how much they made at the time they did this?

Of course, I can't talk about connect the dots and not mention Pee-Wee Herman's connect the dots song!

In theory, it should make it easier right? We'll see I guess.
