I recently purchased a Colecovision Repro Book on EBay, and was asked to scan and share. 

 

The book, so I am told by several AA members, was a book provided by Coleco to local stores, so that they could make their own custom advertisements. 

 

The book is in black and white, and printed on a heavy, shiny paper. Someone at one time, used a three hole punch on the book. Most of the advertisements are  pretty standard, but a couple of them I found interesting. One was for "Wild Western," and there are also a couple of pages with the words Coleco and Colecovision in various sizes and fonts. 

 

I scanned them in png format @ 600 dpi.  If you want the full 18 page book, then download the zip file.

 

I also have a couple of jpgs attached to this post to give everyone a general idea of what is contained in the book.

The book is in black and white [...] png format @ 600 dpi.  If you want the full 18 page book, then download the zip file.

 

One can shift the PNGs to grayscale and reoptimize to achieve the same visible output, with approximately 75% file size reduction on average. Individual files will report 72dpi rather than 600dpi, but the pixel dimensions are identical. See attached.
