Backyard Ballistics

Backyard Ballistics

Growing up, we certainly had our share of fun — and got into a fair share of trouble — with our potato guns. Now we can rebuild better, stronger guns with the help of Backyard Ballistics ($11). Plans for building potato guns, a match-powered rocket, a tennis ball mortar, a pneumatic missile, and more are included. Just make sure not to bust out your neighbor's windows with your "toys."

Also included is a scarcity guide and a bootleg identification guide so you'll know if someone is trying to rip you off at the next Star Wars convention — or yard sale.

  • The Golden Age of Advertising - the 60s

    The 1960s were a very creative time to say the least. This hardcover collection of print ads chronicles the best of what made Americans buy, buy, buy during the crazy decade. In The Golden Age of Advertising - the 60s ($13), you'll find ads for products like cars, alcohol, cigarettes, food, and clothing — including Hollywood stars hocking all kinds of crap, and some really kick-ass futuristic Motorola ads. Plus, how could you not buy a book with a cover girl like that?
