This booklet is a guide to eating in the suburbs and country in New York City put out by the New York Herald Tribune in 1954. Cover and back cover have some fun two color illustrations. The inside has mostly generic maps and text. The style of illustration looks very familiar but it’s unfortunately not credited. Enjoy!

This is one of the most exciting finds this year. This is a brochure done by the famous Japanese illustrator Ryohei Yanagihara. It’s got maps and beautiful complex illustrations. There’s even an image of a cable car in SF which makes this even cooler. Enjoy!

Here’s a fun brochure on Rock Hunting From Nevada. It is full of fun illustrations printed in two colors and a very textured paper. I also love the overprinting triangles on the rocks. I found another one with it about Ghost Towns in Nevada as well but it wasn’t as interesting. The Designer is uncredited and the piece is not dated but since Grant Sawyer appears in the back and he was Governor of the state of Nevada from 1959 to 1967 I’d say it’s safe to date this to 1960.

This is a fun booklet published by Good Reading Rack Service in New York 1956. It is filled with small illustrations by Roy Doty whom I’ve posted before. As usual, love the two color graphics and the playfulness of the illustrations. Enjoy!

Here’s a proper Christmas themed post. It’s a wonderful song book titled “Richfield Christmas Carols”. It has wonderful illustrations all over the place, too many to post. Unfortunately, the designer is not credited. Enjoy!
