In the early stages I had a loan of the catalogue archive from the Filofax marketing department. It took quite a long time to scan all these catalogues in and to then share them via the blog.
You can see the collection to date on the catalogue page. There are some gaps in the catalogues we have, although I can't be 100% sure that catalogues were published every year.
These catalogues give us a snapshot of the model range at the time of publication of the catalogue so we have been able to build up a picture of when models came on to the market and when they disappeared.
They also give us details about the history of the companies, office locations and such like. It is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle but you don't know what the final picture looks like!
Do you have any old catalogues tucked away that will help us fill in any of the gaps?
If you do we would love to see them. Please contact steve at philofaxy dot com if you can help.
