That book was the first place that writers, pencilers, inkers, letterers, and colorists could all find raw material to practice on so they would have something they could submit in the hope of getting a job at Marvel Comics. The original book was actually published as a contest and it started the career of Mark Bagley (he says so in the introduction to this book). The book would describe the job that a penciller, inker, letterer, etc. would have to do, what tools they could use, and then give pages ready for that person to work on (pages without color, pages without letters, pages without ink, etc.) The reader was then invited to go to town on the pages and submit the results.
