It’s cool to still get your hands on old blueprints, or in this case Whiteprints. A chemical process using light sensitive Diazonium salt that results in a print with blue lines on white paper.

White lines on blue paper, called Blueprints, used a similar, but more expensive, light sensitive process to created a negative print of the original drawing.

Actual Blueprints were replaced by Whiteprints in the 1940s. By the 2000s computers had wiped out the chemical process to create prints. However, still to this day, construction plans can be referred to as Blueprints.

    @anthrosbelike It's only a matter of time before someone asks us to design a retro kitchen from 1970. I'm thinking avocado formica countertops, burnt orange cabinets, lava lamp pendant lights, and maybe we'll outfit a Wolf toaster oven with a tinted bubble window from the side of a Pinto station wagon. ...Or maybe not.
