I used to draw a lot when I was younger, but was rarely happy/often frustrated with the end result. Much to my surprise, however, I wound up picking up a copy of Christopher Hart’s “Manga for the beginner kawaii” book at my local library this weekend.
My initial experience turned out better than expected, but I think it’s safe to say I won’t be having a second career as a mangaka. 😉
Been going through bookshelves in my deceased mother’s house, and stumbled across this little historical gem . . . .
In Time of Emergency booklet, circa 1968
Yup, that says 1968.
Three times as many pages are dedicated to nuclear catastrophe as all the other natural catastrophes combined.
The illustrations are quirky, with that teal theme background throughout. (I’m chalking this up to it being the 60s.)
If you ever wonder how much the possibility of nuclear war weighed upon the minds of people in the `60s, I’d suggest you take a look at the table of contents (third photo in the gallery). All the nuclear/radioactive-related material gets more than 3.5 times the number of pages as all the other natural catastrophes combined.
