The Art of The Annual – 1973

As Christmas approaches, TWLB is casting its eye over that Christmas instituition – the Annual. From 1969 to 1984, we will be looking at some of the best examples of Annual cover design, and how tastes and fashions changed through the years. Some Annuals are evergreens (like the Dr Who series), while others are around for one year, never to return….

All Annual images are courtesy of the marvellous tonystrading site – go there for an exhaustive covers gallery;
