The Rocket Book

If you're looking for something silly to read today, take a look at The Rocket Book. Not just copyrighted but also patented in the year 1912.


  1. What a marvelous book! My favorite is the very lastpage with just the hole on it:-D It looks so... modern in a way somehow. I'd love to get my little fingers on an actual copy.

  2. I'm curious to how you find books like this. Do you already know about them and search them out? Is there some source that regularly sends you great ideas? I just want to know how you find such treasures.

  3. Piper: to answer your questions, yes. All of the above.

    As for this one, a friend emailed me about another book on the same site and then of course I had to look around and found this.
