Looking at the pictures, the label would appear to have been produced by the Magazine Publisher and not by anyone else.

This is undoubtedly correct. The fonts and decoration on the printed label match the magazine for 1938.

I expect that the publishers sold identical slipcases for all the different magazines they produced except for the labels affixed to them, which is why they don't seem to fit very well in the box.

The Horn Book was published at that time, as today, by The Horn Book, Inc., which as far as I know published no other magazine (though they did publish books). On the basis of the one example, they evidently offered annual slipcases; I find no mention of these, however, in any issue in 1938. It may be that they were separately advertised. I've also checked the printed Horn Book Index, but found no reference to slipcases.

Except for some breaking and splaying of the slipcase at the top, it seems to me that it fits the six (bimonthly) issues okay. The extra height at the top allows finger access for getting a magazine more easily out of the box.

I'm eagerly awaiting this book! Just thought I should share a reply I got from Douglas Anderson, since it gives some additional info (although the email was sent 9 months ago):

The book hasn't been published, and will likely appear with the build-up to The Hobbit movies, but there is currently no date for it.


Do we have more recent news?

The cartoon strip from which this was taken is my all-time favourite: Bloom County! It's about twenty years old. So yes; fan edit. It's very good; the font is just like the original.

Anyone knows if this is a "fan edit" or an actual comic strip?

The Welsh thing looks very tempting - it would be great to catch up with Shippey and Verlyn Flieger again (and wonderful to meet artists I haven't yet met: Rodney Matthews, and Paul Gregory).

But it's not to be. I reckon the trip would cost us £800.00 just for the entrance fees and four nights' accomodation. Then there's food, and travel costs. Out of the question.

But hey - we always have a good time at Moreton, and I hope to see you both there, and anyone else who can make it.
