This is a Public Collectors Request Line fulfillment for the great Tumblr eggsackley whose wonderfully broad request was “mini comics? cartoony illustrations or ads? record covers/flyers illustrated the same way? drug/spiritual book/happening illustrations?” Maybe this has a chaotic enough mix to suggest several of these things?

Monstrula, published by Martin Kelter Verlag in Germany. I can’t locate a year but based on one of the ads, I believe this may be from 1975. One of several pulp horror stories I picked up from a great little shop in Graz, Austria devoted solely to cheap battered pulp digests, comic-size stories, and paperbacks.

Another dispatch from my youth: one of my earliest books - possibly even the first! The staple overkill binding has held up quite well. I’m not sure when I made I made this but I’m guessing I was about eight years old (which would be thirty-three years ago). More photos to follow.
