1973 Troubador Press Catalog: ‘Presenting a Colorful World for Creative People!’

Malcolm Whyte has very graciously sent me a number of Troubador catalogs that I’ll be scanning and posting. Here’s the first. You’ll spot Monster Gallery, the first in Troubador’s “fantasy trilogy,” first published in 1973. Paper Airplanes and The Dinosaur Coloring Book were always reliable sellers. I’ve yet to nab copies of either.

I do have the outstanding Zodiac Coloring Book, and I have some pages from San Francisco Scenes that I’ll put up next. After that, I’m on break for a week.

    Thanks for posting this. I have a few Troubador books. I love the artwork, so it’s great to see all the covers here. I can remember seeing the nature ones (‘North American Wildlife’) in stores & catalogs. I’d love to see the interior of the Dinosaur one (art by Winston Tong) if you ever come across it.

    The Monster Gallery!! Oh man, I haven’t thought about that in ages. I never, ever saw the book, but every year during elementary school- like clockwork- somebody would bring the book in and Xerox the hell out of it. All us boys would end up with every picture from the book, and usually multiples of some of the pics. I still have a few somewhere among a bunch of childhood stuff I refuse to let go of, LOL.
