it's your head

a while back i was way into old helmets. i found one at an antique shop and painted meat on it--you know, a meat helmet. so at that time i acquired a few different kinds from different countries and different wars. Along with one of the helmets i found was this instruction booklet for how to use your helmet. i have included the cover and a couple spreads. the writing is real tongue and cheek--war can be fun - except when your head gets blown off! the illustrations are great and the use of type make this real immediate and easy to follow--just like drill instructors except with out the drill or the instructor. this is a 24 page manual so if you follow this blog i will drop more in at a later date.
