monster cover scrapbook
Above is a scrapbook that I bought from a newsagents back in the late 70's, being a keen monster fan whom liked to cut out pictures, stories etc about monster/horror films from magazines, newspapers, this was the perfect book to keep them in. Ever since that time I bought the scrapbook I have not seen another one like it, except once on e-bay. As far as I am aware I don't think there have been any others with a monster themed cover.
I still keep cuttings that I come across but not as much as I used to. Remember when The News of the World used to be like a broad sheet?, that was one paper that I got some great stories from, ones about witchcraft, ghosts and haunted houses etc. There seemed to be more stories about these subjects than there is now. I used to look in all sorts of magazines looking for interesting articles, pictures and stories, magazines such as sunday newspaper magazines, Look-in, TV guides, film magazines...a lot of these cuttings I have kept in scrapbooks, others I have just put into boxes. I shall have to try and sort through some sometime and maybe put ones that may be suitable for this blog...
