Brochure, Electronics, A New Science for a New World, 1942
Bayer’s brochure for General Electric promoted FM radio and other forthcoming technologies of its electronics division. On the cover, photo-montaged hands hold a vacuum tube—an early electronic component that vastly improved the detection and amplification of radio signals. Decades of iterations and improvements to this basic technology led to the development of television, computer, and radar systems.
