Action Man Books Description:

4 Books were published for 1971 to further enhance the play value of Action Man. Each was on a specific topic of interest and adventure. All four printed contained unique images of Action Man, useful information and facts on the real-life topic, stories, and 'Blue Peter' style things to make for Action Man with card and glue. The images were a mixture of colour and black and white photography, and bespoke line drawings and illustrations. They appear both in the 1971 and 1972 Action Man Official Equipment Manuals. Cover price in 1971 was 29p.


The 32 page booklets are softback and are a recommended buy for any true Action Man collector. Published by Brockhampton Press Ltd of Salisbury Road in Leicester, and printed by Butler and Tanner Ltd of Frome, Somerset.
