Emanuel Haldeman-Julius : Pocket Series and the Little Blue Books

Front Wrapper Design Style: "Illustrated & Attributed"

Nearly identical to Illustrated wrappers, save for the presence of an Attribution Statement. All illustrations were printed with one color, and the secondary color was provided by the color of the stock, not by ink. The first of these are thought to have emerged between 1947 and 1949, and booklets of this design style can be proven to have still been available for purchase in 1957. It is likely they continued to be in circulation until the plant was destroyed by fire in 1978. Additional information can be found in Dating Little Blue Books.
