Dig those crazy World Book Yearbooks in your self portrait. I'll bet it was the old green-and-white World Book set, with gold stamping on the spine. How we loved those encyclopedias.

You got the color scheme right. I'm pretty sure my parents still have both the World Book set you see and a complete 1980s set of the Encylopedia Britannica. What a treasure.

It would be interesting to compare (contrast) a single entry in one of those books to an equivalent topic in Wikipedia today or even the online Britannica.

PS - see the resemblance between the mini-me and my second son?
