Words and pictures, retro HK style

I couldn't choose which pages to scan out of this book, so here is the whole thing. You could actually print it and make yourself a copy. Be sure to print it onto the flimsiest paper possible: it will be authentic and charming. I find it very interesting that the boy on the cover holds a picture of an orange for his girl, and that the girl holds for him an axe. Someone in Hong Kong had a sense of humour. You wouldn't get away with it these days, would you?

No date is given, which is unfortunate.
