The Crayola No. 64 Box – A Chronological History

Introduction and Table of Contents

 

This is a multi-part feature that steps through Crayola’s history of the No 64 box from its debut in 1958 up to the current day.  In these you’ll find every known box variation, the colors it contained, what colors were removed, what colors were added and how long the box ran.  This is copyrighted original research done by me, Ed Welter. 

 

Each part has a link at the top to all the prior parts and a link at the bottom to the next part.
