4th Edition – Debbies Book Retrospective

COVER4-1986mini1985–1986. Nearly 2 billion folks watched Live Aid; Nintendo video games hit the U.S.; and for the first time, the words ‘Debbie’s Book’ actually appeared on the book’s cover.

A first class stamp was 20 cents; we mourned the Challenger disaster; people protested the new Coke formula, The Oprah Winfrey Show went national; and Back to the Future, Out of Africa and Amadeus were on the big screen. Meanwhile, Debbies Book was becoming big enough to need a comb binding. Dwight Jackson designed a book cover for me, and there were now 19 prop houses to shop at.
