After hiking the Inca Trail in Fall 1986 we hit the Road to Mandalay for Fall 1987′s Catalog No. 33. This striking cover was done by BR staff artist An-Ching Chang.
The travelogue from Mel and Patricia’s journey to Burma is a great read and reminds me of the Soviet Safari as they navigate past an authoritarian regime to get a taste of real life for the people of this fascinating land.
The clothing and illustration continues to become more sophisticated and slick but retains the flavor of classic BR. As usual, there are a number of new items featured in the first few front and back pages of the catalog.
