House of Hardy – 1969 Catalogue

The House of Hardy - Anglers Catalogue 1969

Found this gem in Macleod's Books, Vancouver. What a wonderful book shop, there are piles of seemingly unorganized books to rifle through. This catalogue came from its depths; a real fishing time capsule, one to study and drool over. I uploaded a whole bunch of catalogue pages here. Check out the "Anglers and Sportsman's Pipe."

The imagery in this catalogue is pure fishing gold but I especially love their logo - thick lines and great colours.

1970s Paddy Pallin Catalogue

An awesome 1970s catalogue from the Australian, bushwalking pioneer Paddy Pallin. Pallin was unhappy with the limited, heavy outdoor gear available and  began designing and making his own hiking equipment. Such was the demand that Pallin opened a retail store in the early 1930's on George Street, Sydney. There are still Paddy Pallin stores across Australia, producing and selling original gear.
