Lost Formats Preservation Society

  #




 

 

 

 

The society was founded by design group, Experimental Jetset,  in 2000 with the design of Emigre issue no. 57. It's sole purpose is to save formats from obscurity.
This overview of Lost Formats is not presented in any particular order and not in any way complete. Anyone can nominate their own beloved format by sending a picture and specifications to formats@jetset.nl. (Shown here: Viewmaster, Travan, Compact Cassette).

Wow, haven't seen one of those in over two decades..."Experimental Jetset," by the way, combines the descriptive tags Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon used for themselves for the 1994 Sonic Youth album "Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star" (an album I enjoyed far more than the rock critics do).5/16/2005 9:30:02 PM
