some really nice cut and paste graphics on two tiny brochures for united airline's "instamatic: instant reservations system", probably 1960 or so. at the time this early use of computers in the commercial sector was considered "the world's largest integrated data processing system developed for private industry". it also claimed to have a 1.5 second response to every inquiry... something the airlines have certainly moved away from.
