(Hey, if Urban Outfitters can call Lisa Frank vintage, then these definitely qualify.)

This week I ran across the manual to my childhood woodburner. I’d picked it up when I visited my parents a month ago, but hadn’t looked inside until two days ago when I was delighted to find it full of these hilarious graphics straight out of the 1980’s.

Anyway, I love stuff like this and thought you might too so I scanned some of my favorite pages. If you want high res versions, download the zip file here.

I like the space shuttle, but I think they were getting a little lazy with the rest of this page.
