Trek 50 – Star Trek Giant Poster Book

trek-50In 1976, when Star Trek was celebrating its’ 10th anniversary alongside the United States’ 200th, Paradise Press launched the Star Trek Giant Poster Book. It predated even the earliest incarnation of the Official Star Trek Fan Club by three years. Each issue had articles and folded out to a giant poster, perfect for a young Trekkie to hang on his wall. For the next two years, 17 issues were released to a hungry audience, eager for anything Star Trek they could get their hands on. And then, they were gone. We were teased with one more in 1979 to help promote Star Trek: The Motion Picture but that was it. I still have my four copies as they have survived 40 years, 15 moves and the clutches of the Ferengi. They are certainly a little rough around the edges but here are some images for you to enjoy.
