World War One (1978)
A while back I shared a book I made in 1978 – The Devils Lived Book (here). Here's another book I made the same year, although the term "book" is kind of stretching it. It was more of a series of drawings with a World War I theme. I then bound the pages together using that red and white string you find in a bakery, but have since cut the strings off.
It may not be historically correct – there were no surface-to-air missiles used in World War I – but it shows some creative technique for a 7 year old. I especially like how I dirtied up my fingers with a charcoal stick to create the smoke from explosions.
