Inspiration: 1982 Blumcraft Railing Catalogue

So I have big news - the chair is finished!! Woo! I will be posting the final steps and finish photos later this week.

In the meantime, I wanted to share this Blumcraft of Pittsburgh Railing Catalogue that I nabbed from the recycling pile at an architecture firm I worked for in Vermont in 2000. It's hands down one of the most beautiful product catalogs I've ever seen.

I love that successful graphic design can elevate the mundane, that in the right hands even a catalog for railings becomes something to treasure. It's unbelievably clear and presents a ton of technical information clearly and precisely. It was difficult to only scan 9 pages, the whole catalog is perfectly done!

Pin It!
