Chief Paints. Color Styles and Painting Guide for Beautifying and Protecting Your Home
- N.d., circa late 1940s. Folio, 43 by 33 cm. 59 pp. Missing only one paint strip, of 215. Many color illustrations of house exteriors and interiors, working in the activities of the wholesome American nuclear family ideal of the period, with attractive young parents and their small children. Homes are generally modest but handsome suburban clapboard colonials, with modern, southern plantation and ranch houses also shown. The illustrations are uniformly pleasing, and their interest lies in their sociological content as well. The catalogue is chock-full of explanatory material on all the paint and stain products of the company, along with many do-it-yourself instructions and tips, and so it was really much more than a simple catalogue or color guide. Wear and soiling to the cover. Light wear to pages, which are generally clean. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
