These two needle books are likely both from the late 1940's. "The Holiday" book is marked "Made in Occupied Japan". This book is complete and in very good condition: no tears, creases, or stains. The same graphic is on both sides. The "Fashion Quality" book is incomplete with many missing needles. The cover also has issues. There are some tears on the front cover and a crease at the top. The back cover is in better condition with a small tear at the top. This book also has bumped edges and a slightly missing corner. The charm of this needle book is in the two different graphics which are still bright and clear. Displayed with other needle books or sewing collectibles, these will be colorful and unique.
