[PhotoTextSetter 2000 & 8000 Fold-out Brochure]

"Surprise! and Surprise!" [Fairchild PhotoTextSetter "2000" and "8000" fold-out brochure] (Plainview, NY: Fairchild Graphic Equipment, [no date, but 1963 or later as it uses a ZIP code]). 56 Megabytes.

This brochure has a physical structure which is impossible to represent fully in 2-D digital form. As you would initially view it, the front contains two panels (the top one says "Surpise!" and the bottom one says "and Surprise!"). This is represented in p. 1 of the PDF. If you fold the top panel up, this forms a full page which advertises the PhotoTextSetter "2000". This is represented in p. 2 of the PDF. Similarly, if you fold the bottom panel down, you get a full-page ad for the PhotoTextSetter "8000". This is p. 3 of the PDF. If you close it up again and turn it over, the back full page is as shown on p. 4 of the PDF.
