Log-n-Beads
was done 
manually ... 
32 pages all
typed on typewriters,
artwork was
cut and paste or pen and ink drawings, copies were run off on a Gestetner Duplicating Machine (one step up from a "Ditto" machine for those that can remember that far back), and of course collating and stapling the "booklets"  was all done by hand.  
Singing "Roll Me Over" kept everyone in sync.
