Is it a book or is it a record?
Not a question you often come across these days.
But back in the day, John Winston solved this age-old problem that was plaguing mankind when he created the Magic Talking Book. Rather than including a record with an accompanying book as many children's publishers did back then, he made the book cover itself into a record: plop the volume down on the turntable and spin away!
I found a copy of one of these unusual artifacts at a used book store here "down under" and thought I would share this fun lost technology with you here.
As the ad copy says, they "add a fourth dimension to books"!
