Vintage Science & Tech Adverts is an astonishing collection of print advertisements going way back to the 50's and 60's. Found these vintage adverts through Scott Hansen's blog, ISO50. There are 1,474 images in this Flickr set so pretty sure there are enough designs to keep you browsing for some time.

In particular I am fond of the designs that incorporate large swashes of red, blue and other stunning colours as you can see from the few examples I picked out. Loads of inspiration.

If you have a few moments to spare, then waddle on over to the Flickr page of Michæl Paukner. There are some exquisite works of art here, most of which are available to buy as prints. I could seriously order a fair number of these myself.

Check out his print shop Here you can purchase some posters and nearly all of his images on high quality canvas prints.

The hit Television series Lost has sporned a whole alternative culture, mostly focused on the Dharma Initiative. These vintage Dharma adverts are just classic, they really capture this sub culture and way of life.

As described on Flickr, "Retro DHARMA ads found in various old mags from the 60s - 80s.", one can almost believe they are the real thing.

These posters can all be found on the Flickr Dharma Flickr set.

You can also buy these as prints direct from ImageKind




Continuing the series of Flickr sets, came across this wonderful link on LogoLounge. A drool worthy collection of photos from the 'New York City Transit Authority Graphics Standard Manual 1970' designed by Massimo Vignelli. Certainly not the first to display this Flickr set, being last to the party is a unique skill set I have.

Worth reading some of the comments as they are discussing the various fonts used for this manual.
