This small, hardboard book of 14 pop art-inspired games for two to play was designed by John Astrop and published by Kestral Books in 1980.

The front cover of this book contains an interesting assortment of four typefaces such as Antique Tuscan Condensed Shade for “The Pocket”, Circus for “Board Games”, Algerian (Letraset’s version, which included the alternates used here) for the author’s name, and Windsor for the secondary text.

See the Peculiar Manicule for some sample pages from the interior.
