Within my gallery I have an album called 'cube related memorabilia'
http://www.helm.lu/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=1556
And this album has a sub-section called 'ads' and it contains amongst others pictures of original leaflets, flyers, catalogues, ...

Suitable for this album I recently bought on Ebay a fantastic ITC Gift & Stationary leaflet meant for the retailers and listing the 82-83 range.
The information in this publication is very interesting, showing cube packagings I wasn't aware of till now, like a Special Edition 4x4x4 or a Deluxe Missing Link.

Although the leaflet was rather expensive (>$33), I am happy to have it in my collection, as it shows some of the early history of the cube.

Thanks for sharing this Georges! I've seen the Deluxe Missing Link on Ebay more than once, but I had never even heard of the Special Edition/Deluxe 4x4.

I love those posters a lot that you have there. Could you please get a close up of the right poster? I want to see what it looks like.

Nice to see those old ads and other memorabilia.
Here is an old Dutch ad, I think from 1981, but it could be from 1982 too. Prices still in Dutch guilders.
I must have more of these ads since I collected them at that time.
