For Paper Lovers...

As part of Design Manchester and in a building next to the wonderful #manchesterprintfair at the weekend, was a fantastic display of old sample papers and leaflets showing design ideas and colour combinations from GF Smith and a few other paper and printing companies. GF Smith set up in 1885 in Hull and I think Calson in 1886 in the US, so there was a fair few design nuggets from over the years. Here is a few pics for anyone who hasn't been put off yet by the geekiness of this post! Enjoy!

As I said, nuggets.
