1986 House of Horror Studios Catalog


Joe Reader's House of Horror Studios responsible for creating some incredibly detailed and original masks and hands during the mid to late 80's. I have little information on the company itself, but a thread still exists on the HMA with some nice pictures of HoH masks. Thanks go out to the Maskahuna for sharing these 1986 catalog scans. Stay tuned for some additional House of Horror Studios catalog scans coming soon...

1963 Don Post Studios Brochure

This four-page promotional brochure has some wonderful images of early Don Post Studios masks, including the Hollywood Horrors line, as well as Don Sr., Verne Langdon, and several popular personalities of the time. Forgive the excessive watermarking on these images. It's not done to claim possession of these, but rather to thwart those that might try to sell these images as the real deal on auction sites as has been done with a few of the early un-watermarked catalog scans I've posted in the past.  

A HUGE thanks goes out to Matt Post for sharing these scans of a truly rare piece of early Don Post Studios history...
