There is always something stunning about coming across gems like these two mid-century color palettes. While they may not be the most attractive images, they certainly have helped me nail down that ever-so-unique mid-century vibe. I’m most drawn to the Siliconized High Gloss and Color Varnish sets.
You can see some other examples of these colors in use here and here.

These book covers caught my eye immediately as I was fumbling through mid century design archives. The designer who created these was Richard Paul Lohse for the swiss architectural magazine Bauen + Wohnen. The actual booklet size is about 13 x 9.4 inches.
