Following on from us posting 'An Ode to Blueprint Skateboards', a retrospective tribute to this once great British company, we decided to post a medley of Blueprint adverts that have featured in our fair magazine over the years.
Reading the mag each month, the Blueprint adverts would always stand out and the pleasure of seeing who or what would be the new ad always generated excitement. Have a click through to the right and let nostalgia wash over you.
Waiting for the World really did embrace British crust.

It's always good when a miscellaneous obstacle infiltrates a spot. This bin had no idea that a marvellous swiss hiss would go down over it.
