Brad W Foster
Collection of Brad W. Foster's "Gigags" strips (which he did while a student at Texas A&M in the mid '70s) published by an outfit called Candy Comics. According to the inside front cover there were a number of titles planned to be sold "wherever you buy candy, gum, stickers or decals."
Contains two illustrations not included in the earlier Jabberwocky Gigags collection.
7 × 3½"
Published in 1986 or '87?
Foster offers up various lists of products, inspirations, etc., all of which helped him to create his publications. There's no actual cartooning but plenty of hand-lettering and many of his hand-lettered "typefaces".
The cover to some (if not all) was embossed with a "Library of BWF" stamp.
Signed/numbered edition of 150.
