Fabulous Find #7 ~ Sample Book

Back in June I did a post about the Multiple Choice ~ From Sample to Product exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. I mentioned that I had some sample books of my own that I would share ~ below is one of them. I got this one on ebay within the last year. The cover is tattered and seems very unassuming compared with the inside display. While the cover is just printed in black on a rather thin inexpensive colored stock, the inside is printed in a metallic gold on a rather richly printed black stock. Each sample is carefully attached in the appropriate area. Since the individual bolting cloth samples are rather plain, I suppose the book designer decided to make sure that the presentation looked exciting.
