Motorcycle Blue Book: James Baldwin books from 1950 to 2000 – ABC News
Motorcycle blue books are an eclectic collection of literary fiction that appeared in the 1950s and 1960s and was published from 1955 to 1970.
The books were written in an early form of the “blacker” style, which became popular in the 1960s.
The range of books includes a wide range of authors, including James Baldwin, who was a prolific author of short stories and short stories for children, as well as some of his contemporaries.
The titles include: The Story of the Big Bang by Albert Einstein and Carl Sagan, and How to Keep Your Hair Straight by Marilyn Monroe, among others.
Mr Baldwin’s most well-known book is The Man Who Killed Mr Bloggs, which is a collection of short tales, poems, and short fiction.
He also published novels including The Man in the Yellow Suit, The Man with the Red Shirt, The Story in the Garden, The Lady in Yellow, and The Night Watchman.
“In addition to the books, there is also a range of other publications that he wrote, including a book of stories by his daughter and a book that is a reference work for his novels,” Ms McPherson said.
“His work was a huge influence on my work as a young writer.”
In the 1950, Mr Baldwin and his wife, Rita Baldwin, moved to California and settled in the Gold Country.
Ms McPhailson said she knew the books would be “a big part of her childhood”.
“I loved the fact that he was writing about a place that was a big part a part of my life growing up,” she said.
Ms McIntosh said the books helped her “connect with people who I wasn’t necessarily interested in because of the fact they were different.”
“I didn’t really know what to do with the books,” she explained.
“I would just sit and read them.”
Ms McIntush’s daughter, Elizabeth, is a professional photographer who also lives in the area.
She said the family enjoyed the books and enjoyed the way they connected with people in their community.
“We were just happy to have them,” Ms McInturts said.
