Pete Hawley’s Halloween Monsters are the most adorable monsters I have seen. Dana thought so too, and here you have them.  They are probably an American Greetings punch-out set from the 1960’s, at the height of the Monster Craze.

Dana sent me the link to artist Joe Fenton’s website. While wondering just which works to share here, upon viewing this video my socks were blown off. I had my answer. Wow. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. An extra Thank You comes from me to Dana for finding this!

Where does Dana find these great visuals? What a brain! Such insight! How I miss reading her comments and just what really drew her in. But until then, feast your eyes, and share with us what you think. Enjoy!

Looking back at these posters from 40-50 years ago, it is difficult to fathom the possible demise of books for the masses. How cool would it have been to live back just that short time ago?
