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.

Here’s a very modern cover designed by Emil Antonucci for those lovers of clean Sans Serif type. The the yellow/green is pretty vibrant and definitely a color not used a lot around that time. Love the random arranged yet structured type. The only thing that is not part of the design is the HIFI label. Even though the label is nice by itself, I hate that they slapped it anywhere on the LP’s. Enjoy!

Here’s a fun booklet on how to fight fatigue put out by Alumni Publications, Inc. and Richard Hall, New York. It’s filled with fun two color illustrations and useful information that applies quite well to today. Love the color. Enjoy!

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 another super fun record cover for the Haydn Society by the great Joseph Low. As usual the amount of texture and brush quality is just amazing. Enjoy!
