Telephone Book Covers At Patra's Place

Gina at Patra's Place has shared photos of her telephone book covers. Gina, am I correct in my assumption that one is vintage and one is new?

I've never seen anything like this in my antique travels here in the US. Does anyone know if these were something that were stitched and used here in the US? They're really pretty!

Hi Pam,
Sorry for the delay, but I have been away for a few days. All three of these phone book covers are quite old; I would guess they date back to around 1940's or before, as the Australian phone books they were made to cover were nothing like the 3 inch thick tomes we have to thumb through these days!
