The History of Golden Books Part II

Here's the second, and final, part of the history of Golden Books covering the years 1967-1982.

PS. A set of the Westerner was just auctioned on eBay. I didn't win any of the lots, but here's a glimpse of what the magazines looked like.

And if YOU are the one who won one or several of these, feel free to get in touch. I'd be more than happy to do some "Best of the Westerner" posts. :)

A few years after the timeline displayed here, Western Publishing would enter the home video market with a series of videos adapting many familiar Little Golden Book classics into animation (though very limited). I use to had those tapes in my youth. Of course I felt more ashamed they gave up on the Gold Key Comics line in the 80's, but I guess they saw no potential to keep that afloat.

By the way, April Fools to you! (and I'm not joking)
