A brochure from Ted Nelson's Junk Mail that advertizes the Burroughs B-280 EDP System. The graphic design is in the classic 1950's modern style. It is bold, enthusiastic and uses blank space as a picture in itself. The advertising pitch is focused on the ACTION method that combines computer sales with consuilting services.
