Rochester NY / Muskegon MI: Yawman and Erbe / Shaw-Walker, n.d., 1960s. Pamphlet. Respectively a single folio sheet of coated alkaline paperstock bearing 15 color samples, it folds in half (to 8x11 inches) with color renderings of executive interiors verso (the boss is looking out of his high-rise digs with a telescope in one, the other shows a business-suited lady with an ocelot on a leash). The other item consists of two folio sheet stapled purposely off-center, this displays ten panels measuring 11x8.5 inches each, everything in color renderings, mostly retouched photography. This latter is mildly crimped from handling, otherwise the two items are in very good condition: sound, clean and unmarked.

Items resemble each other in color and layout; one shows a couple of electric typewriters that could pinpoint the date. The color-sample chart displays 4 finishes for standard steel surfaces, 3 for premium steel surfaces, and 8 for desk top coverings. The ocelot is unexplained, but the telescope speaks for itself.
