LOIS LANE #87! The Jack Adler Color Guide! 1968 DC Comics Rarity!

I've already shown you the awesome alternate cover (by Neal Adams) to the ground-breaking LOIS LANE #87, but now get set for the colossal color guide for that issue's published cover! Prepared by jocular Jack Adler, here is the color instruction sheet (used by the engravers at the printing facility) indicating not only basic color schemes, but shading and text coloring, too! Jack was DC's talented production man for many decades, not only providing these kind of guides, but helping to usher in new printing techniques and eye-catching innovations (including photo covers), introducing new formats, and hiring other forward-thinking artists and creative folks into the production staff!
