House Industries Catalog

I’ve been a fan of House Industries since I was about 16 or 17, a time when I knew little about fonts but liked to visit Chank a lot. And even though House is a font foundry, they always had an amazing way of showcasing their new fonts, mostly through their incredible knack for illustration.

The images above are from their most recent catalog (I think) and this may be my favorite one they’ve ever released. The whole thing has a retro, Penguin books feel, and is printed on what feels like recycled, craft paper. The only colors used in the entire thing are pink, orange, goldenrod, and black, and it makes for an amazing visual feast! Coming in at a whopping 78 pages from front to back, I was so excited to go through the whole thing, enjoying every bit of it.

I’ve thrown some scans of my favorite pages under the cut, so check it out if you have some time! They’re totally worth it!
