    I like the castle one. I think it has a picture of a dude pooping into a long chute that ejects the excrement outside the castle wall.

    I’m not sure if these are widely known, but I am a big fan of Stephen Biesty’s cross section books. I borrowed those from the library all the time. And bought them as an adult! They’re fun reads and very informative. Everyone who picks one up will end up smiling when they read them.

      They were widely known, at least in my family. My brother and I went nuts for those books. The castle one even showed the facilities, naked asses and all. Funny shit when you’re 10.

        Biesty includes a pooping figure in literally every drawing where a bathroom can feasibly be accommodated. Sometimes several. It’s basically his signature move.

        Not that I would do anything different mind you. Even adult me always looks for the Signature Pooper.

        That one in particular was awesome! I should pick up the modern version of that one of these days.

    As a poor kid in latinamerica, without access to D&D manuals, those where my home mande RPG manuals. Everything hit with a d6 also because other kind of die where out of reach.

    The anatomy book is actually how I learned how procreation worked.

    I literally have the Gem Stones one near me on my bed right now. They really are the best.

    Popular Mechanics where they’d do something like this with a sub, harrier jet, bullet train, etc

    Just got ran over by the nostalgia truck. Damn. That was cool feeling. I think the castle one was my favorite.

    Is there a lot of nostalgia for these? I have the castle one, but it just sort of appeared in my bookshelf one day.

    Dinosaurs and castles. Honestly, anything with history was probably high on the list. I was already a big history dork from basically the time I could read.
