Valve Ephemera: Brimar Catalogues

This 1948(?) catalogue matches well with the red diamond and banded logo seen in the 1950's boxes. The only way that they have bothered to jazz it up (and let's face it two spot colours is pushing it) is by stripes; in the background and on the box to simulate shadow.

This 1951 catalogue stays cheap to make with a two colour (red and black) image.  Simple design with a coarse halftone fade surrounding duplicated images of the 7C5 valve (with British 8-Pin Lock-in), no doubt trying to depict mass production on a conveyor line.

 

Prices for the valves vary from 4/9 to 50 shillings (excluding purchase tax)
