Now, now. Don’t get too excited.

In celebration of the 100th year anniversary of Leica’s first ever prototype, the prestigious German optics manufacturer made acrylic posters with detachable parts, just like an assembly kit. It was supposed to be a gift for customers but the project didn’t materialize, as the costs involved were too high. Quite the interesting souvenir, if you ask me. Pity that it doesn’t work though!
