Warren Publishing put out this magazine when the movie premiered. I’ve read that George Lucas was a big fan of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine growing up, maybe that led to this special edition? The articles are a fantastic look into the blossoming Star Wars fandom. As a kid I remember reading this over and over… https://www.mediafire.com/file/e8peec23umsn79h/WARRENstarwarsmagazine1977.pdf/file Continue reading Download a 1977 Star Wars Magazine!
As a kid I had the King Kong version of Avalon’s Paint ‘n Wear series of iron-ons. These were black and white designs which, once transferred to shirt, would be painted by you using supplied paint and color guide. I don’t remember how successful I was as a kid on this craft project. But recently, during coloring myself, I was a bit bummed to discover … Continue reading Download Vintage Tarzan Iron-On Designs from 1976

Starlog magazine had a great series of books exploring specific elements of science fiction, from toys to special effects. Starlog magazine happened to start publishing the year before the sci-fi craze swept the country after the release of Star Wars.

This 1977 Godzilla book was part of a series of monster books from Crestwood House. Perhaps the series was the last vestige of the monster mania of the 50s and 60s when TV stations re-aired the classic monster movies to great reception. By the 70s and 80s, that classic monster trend had faded, but these books were quite popular among those too young for the … Continue reading Download Classic Monster Book from the 1970’s

For a lot of us getting HBO into our homes was a dream come true as a kid- especially us kids into movies. Back then there were no multiple HBO channels. Which meant we would watch movies we generally may not have bothered given flashier options more in line with our age demo… I remember begrudgingly watching the Elephant Man one boring night as a … Continue reading Download 80s HBO Guides!
Okay, nowadays many of these designs have been reused in the last decade or so in retro collections, but there are still some rarely seen designs in this 1977 book.
