Yes, Centuri was very graphics-centric for the times and in their latter 60s and early 70s catalogs displayed a great deal of effort to put the best possible image on their products. We are of course used to much slicker graphics and print media presentations today, but for that time period, they did a great job.

While the '71 catalog is my heart's favorite (it was my first rocket catalog ever), the 1972 Centuri catalog was a wonderful production and featured an outstanding layout of images and products.
