I see Nixon's underwear,
here's a tease to Mild Fear

In just 10 days, it will be Halloween (Noč čarovnic). Papergreat has a sometimes tradition of doing Mild Fear posts throughout October, highlighting ghoulish delights from (mostly) the world of ephemera. Typically those posts are spread throughout the month of October (2017, 2016, 2015).

This year, however, I'm stuffing all of the spooky fun into the actual 24 hours of Halloween. So, from 12:01 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. on October 31, you'll get a steady stream of new Mild Fear posts on Papergreat. Refresh your browser often! It'll be much more fun than watching a Dr. Giggles marathon on AMC and/or greeting all the trick-or-treaters wearing Mitch McConnell masks.

So, to celebrate and promote Mild Fear 2018, I give you ... President Richard Nixon in his skivvies, courtesy of a dandy gift mailed to Papergreat HQ by Wendyvee of Roadside Wonders.

It's from 1992's Richard M. Nixon and His Family Paper Dolls, by Tom Tierney.

The late Tierney created paper-doll books on Colonial fashions, French fashions, Civil War fashions, Shakespearean characters, Princess Diana, Marie Antoinette, Viven Leigh, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Sherlock Holmes, President Washington, President Obama, President Lincoln, TV moms, vampires, and much more. But the Nixon book is certainly one of his crowning achievements. It is joyously described by one Amazon reviewer as "Excellent quality and prompt delivery."

But don't take my word for it. Rush out now and secure your own copy of Richard M. Nixon and His Family Paper Dolls, while supplies last. You'll want it by your side in time for Mild Fear 2018!
