Modern aesthetics





The aesthetics in these (swedish) Form magazines from the 50s and 60s feels so up to date. But not always the text content:
"Just as sure as boys will choose balls, and girls will choose dolls to play with – they will choose different patterns and colors on their wallpaper." The text to this ad says.

Would bought, If I were rich and had the opportunity, something by Torun Bulow-Hube.

Wow, very, very modern-looking, particularly the black and white ones, but, yes, I kinda sometimes forget how fast cultural changes have been...

Esti said...

Nu fick du mig att börja tänka på det där med pojkar och flickor och färger och leksaker. Det skulle vi kunna göra något gemensamt jobb om!

Amazing how some things come around to being fashionable again. These patterns are so now! Hopefully some other things stay where they are, old fashioned ideas in the past, thank you... :-)
