Maskarade: Zany Faces to Punch Out and Put On (James & Jonathan, 1969)







Found on eBay. These are all the masks included in the book. I posted some cool “punch out” Star Wars masks last year.

The Star Wars Book of Masks (Random House, 1983)

Beautiful illustrations by Walter Velez, a fantasy cover artist who worked on many Star Wars publications of the time. He also did some work for TSR in the ’90s. His cover for Robert Asprin’s Thieves’ World (1979) influenced a slew of gamers.

Anyway, it’s Halloween and you can only wear one mask. Which one do you choose? I choose Ackbar.

General Mills put out quite a bit of BSG merchandise, including a mail-away cardboard Space Station Kit (for five proof of purchase seals). I’ll post that soonish.
