The queen of all retro knitting patterns is www.ivarose.com
. She collects the original books, tidies them up, and then reprints them for you with a spiral binding. Hundreds, from the late 1800s through the 1940s. She does a great job, she's fast, her customer service is great, and they're not too expensive-- from about $8 - $25. She also has photos of all the project pages in the book, so you can really see what you're getting and choose wisely. You click on a book, and then scroll down and there are the original drawings and photos, and she notes whether each design is knit or crochet. Can't say enough good about it.
