THE EXPO FILES | From The Canadian Design Resource :: 1867 – 1967 ::: The Best Yellow Pages Ever
Summer in Canada, 1967.
Montréal had expo, Toronto had the TD Centre’s first tower, and design was on the ascendancy in Canada. Canadians from coast to coast were celebrating their country’s first 100 years and everything seemed possible.
These Yellow Pages (remember those relics from the 20th Century?) has great typography and the verso featuring the Centennial logo in yellow is totally groovy — it’s a real mid-century modern collectors’ item (see link below if you want it!).
Thanks once again to the outstanding The Canadian Design Resource and its incredible archive.
