From the mid-20th century, these fantastically illustrated scraps feature lots of space scenes.
As with many of the scraps and die cuts made in the 20th century, these are children in adult situations. The advent of space exploration in the 1950s and 1960s and early 1970s, led to many products such as these. Rather than intricately die cut motifs, these are nicely expressed vignettes that are die cut into shapes - probably meant for découpage.
The scrap relief sheet is approximately 9 inches by 7 inches, ready for you to clip and use in your artwork. And each sheet is lightly embossed to accent. The shapes make these perfect for accenting boxes, pencil cups or other such items.
These are authentic vintage old stock, never used, and packaged in acid free acrylic sleeves for their protection. Created by the now defunct EAS printers in Western Germany, these designs are no longer available as the E.A. Schwerdtfeger printing company closed in the 1980s.
