The Family Circus by Bil Keane first appeared in newspapers from 1960. The first book was published in 1966 by Fawcett, who went on to be the sole publisher of all Family Circus Books into the 90s, with the exception of some landscape ones produced by Andrews, McMeel and Parker in the 80s. There are still many more books but I do not have the images. If anyone can help with this (or better still swap me the books), please email me. Below is a Gallery of Family Circus books in year order.

Many thanks to Mark Bishop and Kendra Brown for image contributions
