The hideous is strong in this one
The photo above is part of the amazing collection of Christmas and Toys catalogs from 1942 to 1992. A treasure trove of scanned pages out of Sears and other similar catalogs. I must warn you, though: it’s like a visit to that aunt fond of polyester and imitation porcelain figurines who covers her dining table with colorful vinyl. Which is to say, not for the weak or the minimalist design minded.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
