Bring a bit of the 70s into your home with this pop up telephone directory
Remember these? A pop up telephone address book could be found on desks and telephone tables everywhere during the 1960s and 70s. In those innocent pre-iPhone times it was the quickest and flashiest way of getting in touch with people. Perhaps you had one yourself or can remember being little and playing with one that your parents or grandparents owned!
You can rediscover the pop up index in all of its kitschy glory with this fantastic recreation from Genius Ideas. It works in just the same way that you remember, with the addition of spaces for emails, mobile and fax numbers – perfectly linking modern and retro. If your trusty original index has finally given up the ghost then this is a perfect replacement, allowing you to transfer all your contacts while adding any new details that they may have acquired over the years. It’s also perfect if you’re from the younger generation and are looking to achieve the retro look in your home; it will look just perfect next to vintage furniture.
Just fill in the details of all your favourite people on the alphabetised pages with a good old pen or pencil (remember when people used those?!). Close the lid and you’re ready for the magic to begin! Move the slider to the initial of the person you want to look up, press the button and voila – there they are! It’s instant and will never freeze, crash or run out of battery like more modern ways of storing phone numbers. There is space in the front for emergency numbers and other hand pieces of info. In the back is a memo pad for jotting down any important details from your phone conversations or even doodling away while you chat.
