The Godzilla Artwork of VIDEO TREASURES (1987-89)

I've been working on a chronology of all of the Godzilla (and friends) VHS releases in the USA...which turned out to be a large project.  We will get back to this topic soon.  

Today, however, we take a moment to remember Video Treasures.  In the over 150 Godzilla-&-related tapes that were produced, from the early 1980's to 2002 or so, the releases of Video Treasures stand out, because they commissioned artwork that was not only original, but striking and well-done! This wouldn't be repeated on a large scale until the 1990's, from a "big" player, Paramount.

In 1995, Video Treasures was combined with a competitor, Starmaker, and merged together, creating Anchor Bay Entertainment, which in 2016 was "folded into Lionsgate."
