Additional Information

To promote the 1988 paperback release of the novel Communion: A True Story by American ufologist and author, Whitley Strieber, publisher Avon Books gave out these promotional buttons, stating above an alien’s likeness, “We are here.” The book is based on the author's personal account, who experienced "lost time" and terrifying flashbacks, which was linked to an encounter with aliens during his hypnosis sessions with a therapist. The book was later made into a film starring Christopher Walken as Strieber and Lindsay Crouse as his wife, Anne. 

Avon Books was founded in 1941 by the American News Corporation (ANC), and was established by brother and sister Joseph Meyers and Edna Meyers Williams. Originally named Avon Publications, it was an American paperback book and comic book publisher. As of 2010, it became part of HarperCollins, publishing primarily romance novels.
