Hi guys,

You can call me crazy but I like papers. You know all this little books and stuff that (use to) come with things and that you can take into the bed to kind of keep playing with the toys when its too late in the day to make them shout!

Well I slowly became fond of B&O manuals Art covers and I started a little project.

So far i've detected 4 generation of user guides:

- The red/blue/black ones with jitter drawings edges.
- The very graphical ones (see my example below).
- The ones with a photography of a detail of the device.
- The (to my knowledge…) last and current ones with a mosaic of grey current B&O lineup. (not interesting to me.

So, my goal is to turn this:

Fo those who knows, its vector art which mean you can print it stamp size or big poster size without quality loss (for the graphical ones only).

For the photographical ones it should be more complicated, and even more since the B&O Press Mediacenter looks to be closed now.

So there come my question:

If you have any of this littles books, would you mind to scan or shoot the cover and post it here for me to use it as a model?
In exchange i will share my files and may even made some on-demand adjustments (like removing or customizing texts).

Any source for high quality (res) ) pics are also welcome.

Hope you could help me.

Thank you.

M.

Hi Elephant,

I din't know those ones. I find them graphically less interesting. But i can "remark them if anyone wants them too. In that case just post the size too as to my knowledge there's no PDF of the content lying around over the internet like for almost all the 90's products.

Thanks for the offer

I have no need myself for them although I love their minimalist approach

It was just for you if you wanted a hobby challenge !

Saint Beogrowler, Thank you. Yes like this! My B&O paper knowledge being only based on the PDF lying around on the internet, I wasn't aware such kind of drawings were ever in B&O docs. I find particularly funny the little Ferrari and the "finding your way" illustration! I'm gonna work on those covers for sure. Thank you again.

Hi Leosgonewild,

Where? On your over beautiful new TV arrangement? Of course i can! I'm pleased to.
Why wouldn't I, I'm just a copycat, here! 

The jpg files are 1000 pixels high If you need more, just tell me the pixel count you need.
If you rather the vector files and you're able to manage them (regular illustrator files) just tell me how i can send them to you or make the available to all.

Just be aware it's a work in progress and (I hope) many more will come along!

Thank you for your interest!
