We love a good charity shop, in particular buying random old school books and printed things just because! We thought we would share some of the gems we’ve come away with, through a new blog series called Second Hand Library.
In each post we’ll share a unique book, leaflet, flyer or other printed ephemera that we’ve brought because we like the dust cover art, or we like the use of typography for the headers, or we just dig it because its cool! – what ever it is we’ll share the little or big details that makes the item unique.
First up is is a couple of safari leaflets from the 70s. These two brochures inform the ins and outs of Woburn and Windsor safari parks, and go into detail some of the animals and attractions on offer for the visitor. The double page spreads showcasing the park maps are dope, as well as a pull out pamphlet advertising a free safari poster for your wall. The psychedelic type accompanied with the film photography makes these two leaflets a piece of archival design gold!
We’ve gathered some of the best pages above and be sure to check back in to see more in the Second Hand Library series.
