Nice sleeve art Tom. I love the way the old 8mm releases often used a completely unique artwork for their cases. It would be interesting to see more info about the artists employed to work for these companies who did this stuff. All the poster artists get credit and talked about...but you never really hear anything about these 8mm sleeve-art people.

Haven't picked up any 8mm stuff for a while now but the last one i did was SALVARE LA FACCIA...on 5 reels!

The featured artwork is actually from an Italian poster for the film.

I really like the 8mm boxes ....... and it would be fun too have a projecter.

but I think the quality off most 8mm is not so good anymore ......
still if the movies are not too expensive, they look very nice!

giu la teste hombro is on italian ebay ..... looks very nice ...... but i think i will limit it to dutch releases with a hardbox, or a plastic video like box.

did you ever see dutch pressbooks of spaghetti westerns?
