Beautiful day for new beginnings

hrc_01_100_amygorrek_low

I am feeling inspired on this 2016 Election Day by Hillary Clinton, and the notion of the USA electing its first female President.

To celebrate the spirit of new beginnings, I am kicking off my 100 day project (created by the incredible Elle Luna) today! I will create one collage per day for the next 100 days. This is something I’ve been wanted to do for awhile, and I think today is a most excellent day to begin. Follow along with me on instagram if you’d like! 01/100

Seasons by Blex Bolex

As soon as I picked up this book, I dove right in and began to swim through it’s pages. Each spread is thoughtful, unique and graphically stunning. At $19.95, it makes a wonderful gift for kids and adults. Illustrated by French artist, Blex Bolex, and published by Enchanted Lion Books.

And HOW!

Je l’adore

From one of my MOST favorite specimens of typography (ever); an antique French printed road map. I melt every time I look at this thing of beauty. These scans are from a promotional insert within the map folder. I will include images of the map in a future posting. Slurp it up, typography lovers.


Basement Finds

I accidentally caused a smallish (harmless) flood in our basement last week. While mopping up, I noticed a handful of little packaging treasures on the shelf. Old items left behind by the different generations that have inhabited our house since it was built in 1940. Simple type + graphics + illustration. Pre-computer, pre-photoshop. Stuff like this makes me happy.
