My trips on the internet have taken me to some pretty strange and interesting places. In fact, "going down the rabbithole" as I call it, is one of my favorite things to do while surfing the web and is pretty much wholly unique to this technology. Attempting the same thing in any other medium is nigh impossible.
The world of Tumblr offers up some cool sites by individuals that post nothing but pictures. Others grab a shot that they like and put it on their "Tumblr posts" and so on, creating a huge network of subject matter covering everything from vintage to fetish.
On one of my journeys I came across this image. I was quite surprised as I don't recall every seeing it before. Depicting what appears to be a japanese magazine called WORLD MONSTERS, my first thought was that I had come across a possibly rare item.
The cover image depicts Eddie Powell and Maggie Kimberly in THE MUMMY'S SHROUD, a 1967 Hammer film. A presumption could be made that this publication is from that era.
The Japanese are famous for their photo collection publications, so it's also possible that this could be a book of some sort. Since I can't read japanese, I can't tell what the writing on the cover says. Can any Monsterologist out there offer any help or know what this is?
