The Technicolor Yellow Pages

A couple of years ago, I decided that Google had made phone books obsolete. They're clunky, quicky-outdated, and waste paper, and are the bane of an apartment lobby's existence. Well, phone book company, let me make a deal with you. If you can start making phone books look like this again, I'll take back everything I ever said about you.

Designed by the great Asher Kalderon with Ester Kurty in 1974.

That is beautiful. I thought phonebooks always had ads for shyster lawyers promising to get me the most $$$ for my work injuries!

I miss the phone books of my youth (namely when Ma Bell was still around)!
