I've been meaning to draw some images from this small Sears catalogue for a long time. Granted, the images are already drawings, but it's still fun to redraw drawings. By the way, there are some strange items in that catalogue, like "Electric Belts" with scrotum attachments that send electricity through your system and cure all kinds of ailments and defects.
Besides the old-timey stuff in the catalogue, I like the various typography treatments, which you can see echoed in the work of Chris Ware's Acme Novelty Library.
