Valve Ephemera: Ediswan

This 1958 data booklet has quite a rich image using just two colours (red and black).  Half-tone shadow image of the cathode ray tube and modern valves, reversed out white front tube and transistor logo in the corner.  Up to date valve shape AND a transistor mean that Ediswan were definitely going for the path-leader image.
Large format (132pp), staggered index cut-outs and pictures of their factories and other components is impressive.

This data booklet shows that in 1960 Ediswan was continuing to push the limits of design with a two-colour (blue and black) process.  The background represents the no-signal fuzz seen on a cathode ray tube.
The size of this booklet (164pp) is again, impressive.
