I followed a link from the Wikipedia article on Spirograph to this user manual for Super Spirograph. It’s in French, Dutch and German. Thanks to Stephanie Molina who posted it on Scribd.
It’s 39 pages of vintage goodness, including many patterns you can make with the non-super Spirograph. Plus it has ideas for taking them further into artistic creations of your own.
Many of the designs are familiar, but there are some that I don’t remember from any English-language manuals. Perhaps they were part of some of the earlier Denys Fisher versions out of England.
Even if you don’t read any of the languages, illustrations and the color-coded text can guide you in creating the designs yourself.
A particular charm is that the patterns are obviously hand-drawn, complete with misalignments and splotches.
Apparently Spirograph was distributed in Europe by Meccano France S.A., as shown by the trademark at the bottom of the document.
