Fantastic vintage, scratchy, halftone-y, colorful, off-register, lush goodness from CSA in the form of CSA Flat File. Inspirationy!

I really like this vintage illustration by James Flora, for Fortune magazine in 1966. It’s part of Illustration House’s upcoming auction. (Lot 43). Notice it is based on the Northern Renaissance print by Martin Schoengauer of St Anthony tormented by demons.

Cool little known reference books on vintage postcards

Since we Canadians are coming up to an election I thought I’d share something patriotic. Unless you are a postcard collector you probably won’t come across these books. They’re produced by Michael J. Smith, who has been collecting vintage Canadian postcards for a loooong time. Although written for collectors and focusing mainly on cataloguing, the book I just bought has 900 colour reproductions of cards from 1903-1920 or so. (Image here is from vintagepostcards.org)

You can also read an essay here by Michael on vintage postcard collecting.
