World of Wonder: part 21

We've had a bit of a break since the last set of illustrations from World of Wonder. For newcomers, WoW 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.

You should also check out a great British magazine called "Finding Out".

Glad everyone is enjoying this little trip down memory lane.

I'd cover Finding Out if I had copies, but I don't think I have any.
