Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the thirties and forties a new breed of comic book hit the stands — the wonderfully chunky little picture books known as Big Little Books. Spiffy miniature hardcovers that fit in the palm of your hand, they told thrilling adventure stories and featured an action-packed illustration on every other page. Now valuable collectors items, Big Little Books are highly sought after by designers, artists, and nostalgia buffs. The Big Book of Big Little Books reproduces jacket art and illustrations from all the classics and tells the history of their most sensational stars, including Buck Rogers, Dick Tracy, Betty Boop, and Mickey Mouse. Covering all the genres, from science fiction to detective mysteries, from humor to the high seas, The Big Book of Big Little Books is a golden opportunity to witness the fabulous graphic design of the thirties and forties, and a special treat for the millions who love comics.
