Whitman 1928 Major Matt Mason Pressout Book


This very cool item is one of the rarest of the paper products to find in any condition, much less unpunched. Besides a very cool photo cover of Matt on a Reconojet, the interior featured accurate paintings of some of the vehicles in the MMM line, as well as figures wearing various suits or on platforms. The centerfold is a moonscape with the space station, mountains and the earth in the background. Flying vehicles could be "tabbed-in" to the slots cut on the background to simulate flight. The various other figures/vehicles/accessories have paper "T"-stands or fold-backs to help them stand.
