Here is a neat package I found at an estate sale. It's pretty self-explanatory and I wish we had the range of zippers shown today. From the early 1940's. I believe you can click on the pictures to see them larger.
Here is a very interesting article explaining the early years of Talon, Inc and the development of the modern zipper. Here is a link to a book celebrating Talon, Inc's first 50 years. An interesting article chronicling the later years of Talon, Inc. Talon, Inc may even play a part in discovering what happened to Amelia Earhart! And, of course, the Wikipedia entry on zippers.
