With the advent of the digital world, printed matter seemed to make an exit from most business’s marketing efforts. Every resource was directed at the online presence, websites, webshops, newsletters and online catalogues, a wealth of intangible information. We have been as guilty in this respect as all the others, the last catalogue we printed having been about 18 years ago now!
My favourite from all the old Westley Richards catalogues that I have here in the archive, has always been the one pictured above, it has for me a certain charm and is for me the perfect size to fit in a pocket when picked up at an exhibition, so I think it fitting that we base our next offering on this vintage gem.
It is very nice to be working once again with Colin Townsend who produced our last catalogue in 1998 and Peter Horridge, the exceptional typographer who created the artwork for the cover of In Pursuit of the Best Gun as well as our current guncase Trade Label. We look forward to producing another unique and collectable Westley Richards catalogue that will hopefully remain a keepsake of our work for many years to come.
