Very good condition.

This card poster measures 51 cm x 35 cm.
The Advance of Audio Apparatuses is a smart, concise collection of hand-illustrated music players dating as far back as 1840, with the ‘Key Wind’, a device that predates the Thomas Edison-invented cylinder-playing Phonautograph, right through to this year’s latest offering for Apple obsessives, the iPhone 5S.

There’s plenty of famous faces among the 219 players collected, from the classic bar-style jukeboxes of the mid-50s, to the iconic 80s boombox, and even Sony’s rogues gallery of now-defunct devices like the cassette-playing WalkMan (ask your folks, kids) and its swiftly superseded next-gen countepart the MiniDisc player.

There’s also some stranger sorts among the familiar CD and Vinyl playing devices, such as the luxury Swiss-made Goldmund Reference turntable and the equally clunky chrome looking Transrotor Artus, and the wonky phone that is the Panasonic R-72 ‘Toot-A-Loop’. Then there’s the ream of mp3 players in the early oughties before Apple’s iPod sweeped most of the competition aside will surely bring up some warm and fuzzy memories for the Napster generation.

Who knows, there may even be an updated version soon enough that will simply include a big computer screen with logos for streaming services like Spotify, Deezer, Pandora et al.


An excellent example of a piece of NZ poster office memorabilia. Fantastic for the medical goth autopsy morgue morticians vintage collector, man cave or shed bar home decor collection.
