Vintage Gameboard Box

I got this idea when cruising thrift stores; I would find these awesome vintage board games but they were in terrible condition. This particular one I had to reinforce with thicker cardboard because it was falling apart (don't worry, I wouldn't dismantle a mint condition vintage piece). I think it's hilarious that they're trying to trick you into learning; it's FUN to learn words! I think I found a date of about 1964 on it. I took all the papers with the words you're supposed to learn and bound them with a sort of coptic stitch with the word 'dial' thingy at the end so you can open each page and still use the dial. The spine of the book is bound with black book clothe and the inside is just painted with black acrylic.
