Throwback Thursday: Kittens!

For this week's Throwback Thursday, I headed down to the Archives hoping for a bit of inspiration from the Library team. They did not disappoint.

In their weekly meeting (which they kindly let me join), they told me they were currently cataloguing all the old posters sold by the Scholastic Reading Club to teachers and students. They had boxes upon boxes lining the walls, and they were making an elaborate spreadsheet listing every poster we had (noting the subject matter and amount of each), and putting them in massive, black file cabinets.

"Anything interesting?" I asked.

"There are SO many cat posters," they replied.

The lightbulb over my head switched on. (Figuratively, not literally.) So, without any further adieu, here are some classic cat posters. Enjoy!

Calling All Cats, 1992

I'm a Star, 1984

Three Kittens, 1979

Trick or Treat, 1981 (I was totally expecting this poster to feature a cat sitting in a jack o' lantern, fyi.)

Christmas Kittens, 1979

Bucket of Fun, 1995

Special thanks to Scholastic librarian Deimosa Webber-Bey for her help with this series!
