cheque check

i came across a wonderful piece of fancy interactive print dating back to 1968 this week: a multilayered how it works guide that employs, fold-outs, tracing paper overlays and typical sixties icons to explain the mysterious (and now defunct) bank cheque, the bank itself is of course also now defunct…

this particular piece (design uncredited) brings to mind two other classic pieces of print: firstly in terms of style the original versions of marshall mcluhans’ seminal books and secondly, in terms of content and approach, piet zwarts’ often quoted het boek van ptt

the whole past print blog is worth a look by the way, plenty of ‘offline’ nostalgia for those in need…
