Images From Where? and By Who? Part. III

Posted by Jakub

Here is the 3rd installment of Images From Where? and By Who? So we all download and save images of items, graphics and photos from the internet daily and some of the time you have no idea where to give credit besides maybe the guy that posted it first or second randomly on a blog. I ‘d like to get some answers on a few of these but also just post some interesting pieces that we come across that might have been sitting on our drives for awhile that are go to for inspiration or just found randomly on a forum with no info attached and just look great. Either way hopefully the point that gets across here is that they are inspiring in some sort of way to you as well.

This first one with the polaroid packaging i’ve just always wanted to know if it was real, I mean the wear might just be too good to be true and the simplicity is just perfect, anyone know if this was an actual packaging for polaroid? if it is i’m going to find a few on ebay so I can just have the box.

If you know me I have a huge fear of large ships, just the sight of them freaks me out but its not the case here, this boat/plane is gorgeous, its like a fantasy vehicle and its soo perfect with the glass dome at the top.

Klopfer Holzhandel seems to be some kind of German company, who ever branded this company my hats off to them, i’m not sure if this is the logo or just a brochure/flyer, either way its eye catching every time I scroll by it.

YES- the polaroid packaging is real- sorry i can’t give a more educated insight but i remember this floating around in the apt I grew up in Athens, Greece in the late 70s mid 80s… simply beautiful design. And now this reminds me of the sinclair spectrum where i played videogames at the time, which also featured black and the same color stripes as their logo… Strange- never thought about it before- must have been the design trend of the time/?

The Polaroid packaging (I’m fairly confident) is from a film-cassette package for the Polaroid Sun 600 model camera (instant develop), circa 1980’s. My parents had one, and I remember seeing that packaging.

The Polaroid image is from an SX-70 booklet.. you can see the SX-70 in the lower right. I have this instructional booklet at home, however, it doesn’t have the little SX-70 drawing in the corner. I’ve never seen that on a booklet so it was probably placed there.

Looks to me like a brush was used to age it. Look just below the top.. seems like a strange place for such a harsh wear…?
