World of Wonder part 33
For newcomers, World of Wonder was a British educational magazine published in the early 1970s. Often considered the lesser companion to Look and Learn, I had to look through all the issues I had recently, when I was researching the Pages from History
book, and was reminded just how good some of the illustrations were. As
it's not a magazine that many have collected, I'm trawling through the
copies I have (not a complete set by any means) and gathering together a
few galleries featuring images that take my fancy. You can find more of
these mini-galleries by following this link.
AVAILABLE NOW! Countdown to TV Action Click here for details and payment options. "The perfect compliment to my set of Countdown/TV Action" - Graham Bleathman. "A wonderful trip down memory lane. Recommended" - Paul Simpson, Sci-Fi Bulletin "If you read Countdown as a child, you'll be fascinated by this account of its making ... indispensable." - John Freeman, Down the Tubes "The definitive history of the title" - Lew Stringer, Blimey!
Lion King of Picture Story Papers Click here to order "It's a great read in itself and has sent me back to the Lion comic to re-read some of my childhood favourites. The pictures are reproduced crystal clearly and even this old man can read the original art ... It's a gorgeous book and if we are snow-bound as the media has been saying for weeks, I have plenty to keep me amused this chilly January weekend!" - Norman Boyd.
Sexton Blake Annual 1941 Click here to order "If you've been meaning to give Sexton Blake's adventures a try, this would be a great place to start. I've seen the actual annuals go on Ebay for three or four hundred bucks, so this is definitely a bargain too." - Singular Points.
Peter Jackson's London Is Stranger Than Fiction Click here to order ""The original books have been highly collectable for many years now, but finally they’ve been republished in a single volume from Bear Alley Books ... for the ridiculously reasonable price of £14.99. Do yourself a favour. " Christopher Fowler.
