Quick Snaps: Frigidaire, Kitchen of Tomorrow

Thanks to Mr. Brent Couchman, I was able to visit the Paper Fair in San Francisco. We both found some amazing stuff but ran out of time. Here’s one that didn’t get to come with me. It’s a foldout pamphlet for Frigidaire titled “Kitchen of Tomorrow”. Sorry for the crappy iPhone photos. Click on images to enlarge.

Quick Snaps: Frankie Laine and the Four Lads

Another quick snap from my cell. I really like how they treated type back in the days, specially hand made textures and patterns. Here’s a good example from an old record cover that didn’t get to come with me.

Quick Snaps: Four Freshmen

Here’s to the new section called “Quick Snaps” This one didn’t get to come with me. 12″ LP album cover for the American Male Vocal Band Quartet, Four Freshmen. Loved the color overlays and composition. It looks very Max Huber.
