School Tablets

In honor of this festive back-to-school time of year (well, for parents anyway), I present to you this group of school tablets. These are about the size of a steno pad and contain that big lined paper those of us who went to elementary school in the 1960s and 1970s remember, sorta tan colored, really cheap, wide lines, so coarse you can almost see wood grain. Now all I need is that big round blue pencil and I'm all set. These come in a variety of sizes, what appears to be 50, 100, and 150 sheet tablets or thereabouts.

Recognize the art on these? You should, I spent almost two weeks in the Vira greeting card series, where all this art comes from. This yellow pad's art is taken from this birthday card and this get well card.

This red pad's art of Alice and Dinah is taken from this birthday card and this get well card.

This blue pad's art of the Mad Hatter and the March Hare is taken from this birthday card (the one I don't have).

Oddly, this pad of the Mad Hatter pouring tea for Alice uses interior art from the same two cards as the yellow pad above.

And last but not least, the red pad's art of Alice is taken from this birthday card and this get well card.

I don't know if this is the complete set of tablets, since obviously there are six different card styles, and one of these pads uses interior art, there could be as many as twelve different styles.
