Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday. To start the new year off right I'm posting one of my all time favorite items, a copy of This WeekMagazine with a full color photo of Kathy on the cover.
This Week was one of several Sunday newspaper supplements of the day,
that had lots of little fluffy articles on current events and such.
This particular copy came from the Detroit News. The cover on this is
great, featuring Kathy in her Alice garb meandering through the mockup
of the Tulgey Wood on her way to the Mad Tea Party.
Inside is a very typical marketing piece on the upcoming film, titled
Alice in Movie Land. It sports a few more animation reference photos
with side-by-side comparisons to the final film, although they do make a
couple of mistakes.
I remember the first time I saw one of these supplements, it was at this giant used bookstore in Burbank called Book World (which is no longer there I believe), and it had a pretty amazing price tag on it too. But time passed and I managed to find a copy that didn't cost me my rent money for the month. I do think this is the largest full color image of Kathy in costume published domestically, and certainly the most striking.
