I'm currently working on a two-part post that I'm very excited about. I hope to have it up by next week, so in the meantime, check out some nice illustrations I found in this Peter Pan Peanut Butter booklet from 1963. You will thank me to no end for sparing you the text that accompanies the artwork because if you were ever so daring to read through it, you'd be treated to the fabulously mundane story of the peanut (which is not a nut, but a vegetable) which originated in South America and was taken back to Europe and eventually the world by the Spanish Conquistadors. Yes, George Washington Carver has his own chapter. Strangely, he's not pictured. Nevertheless, the illustrations are wonderful. And dig that cover! Too bad the artwork inside is not as colorful, but still interesting. Enjoy:

I've scanned more from the booklet so be sure to check out the rest in my Fun Ephemera Flickr set.
