 Remember those original iMacs, and the iPod Mini? This was Apple's "five-colour" strategy and it all seemed so new and revolutionary at the time !

Well , we love these images of Kodak Vanity cameras and the wonderful art deco designed beaubrownie box cameras . These were introduced in the 1920's by Kodak who employed  industrial design legend Walter Dorwin Teague to boost  their camera sales after the 1st World War. The vanity cameras came out in five different colours and also had coloured boxes that matched each camera colour.
