These books were made to give the show a life outside the screen. In the 1970s, consumer-recording devices didn't exist, so if you missed a show you missed a show. No re-runs. One vital element is the way in which the collective energies of humor, performance, sound, music, and set design come together and is translated from a live format to a still or flat one. The books are also important examples of how documents or support publications relate to an existing institution, but can exist independently in its own form.
