Print Collection publishes new images each day. Fall in love with one? No problem, order a museum quality print for your home or office. I wouldn’t mind a copy of this Flatiron Print, or this Amundsen Blimp.
For fans of Mid-Century modern design, this classic image above from Playboy, July 1961 is like the Holy Grail. Design masters & fellow peers in their prime, beautifully captured in a time that was aesthetically crisp, uncluttered and innovative.
What a strange, yet intruiging Art Project: The Smoking Gun in the Kitchen, revealing the criminals behind our food.
Grab a coffee and a cookie and dive into the New York Public Library’s Photostream on Flickr. Amazing discoveries to be had.
These Acoustic listening devices were developed for the Dutch army as part of air defense systems research between World Wars 1 and 2. Made me look! Oh my!
From France this is a beast of a wall calendar measuring in at 17x16x1.5″. Inside the plastic frame sit 56 ‘windows’ which turn around to reveal the dates, month and day. The pattern alone, so retro, is *amazing* but when it is interspersed with numbers it is magnificent. Unique, collectible and in good vintage condition. And already SOLD. Bummer.

A promotional trailer for the typeface Heroine. Due to be released on Sept 15, 2009.
Heroine is inspired by the typeface Windsor, designed by Eleisha Pechey in 1905. Windsor is the typeface used in the titles of many Woody Allen movies. A modern interpretation of this rusty pearl is something that always have been missing in the major type libraries. But Heroine is not only an interpretation, it goes beyond that. With the addition of swashes and alternate letters in several styles it becomes very addicitve.
