ANORAK - ISSUE 4 - NOVEMBER 2007
This issue is one of my favourite editions because it marks the beginning of us exploring themes beyond the traditional and extremely unimaginative ones that we seemed to be bombarded with, such as dinosaurs and robots. It also marked our first anniversary. Aw baby publishers!
The incredible cover by Supermundane showed Anorak looking suitably ghostly and was all done using pencils and watercolour.
It carries THE most incredible fashion shoot ever, illustrated by Rob Flowers. This story still makes me giggle. It didn't launch any models careers, but it certainly entertained us all.
This theme came about for several reasons: my son started having night terrors which left us both having to rationalize what fear did to us; it was the Autumn and Halloween was just round the corner; I was getting bored with the same old topics being churned out in kids books, which are -STILL TO THIS DAY - dinosaurs, princesses and robots.
The main feature explored what fear does to our bodies and minds, phobias, witches, best scary scenes in movies and even carried a gallery of monsters drawn by some of our Little Editors. It concluded that fear was nothing to be frightened of!
