  • Pin Up Girl Magazine from 1942 -- Film Fun
    A fun and historic look back to the pin up days for the 1940s. This Film Fun magazine is from April 1942 and features the beautiful cover art of Enoch Bolles, pioneer of American pin-up art. Bolles was the exclusive cover artist for Film Fun magazine from the 1920's until the publication folded in the 1940's -- a victim of the Postmaster General's campaign against "salacious" material. The inside pages are packed full of risqué images of women, both famous and not-so-famous. This issue includes photo spreads of Hollywood actresses Veronica Lake, Gene Tierney, Linda Darnell and others. The magazine also contains a feature on the burlesque dancers of the famous New York nightclub Jimmy Kelly's. The magazine is in good condition. There are some very light water stains on the inside pages, and there is one very small hole cut out of the magazine's final page of classified ads. The binding of the magazine is tight with all the pages intact and free of tears. Please see posted photos to determine condition.
  • Breathtaking Typographic Posters Smashing Magazine
    You can't design without type. However, yon can use only type (or mostly only type) to create breath-taking designs. In fact, many graphic designers and artists take exactly this route to communicate their ideas through their works. The results are sometimes crazy, sometimes artsy, sometimes beautiful, but often just different from things we're used to. Thus designers explore new horizons and we explore new viewing perspectives which is what inspiration is all about. This post showcases over 50 breathtaking typographic posters designed by artists across the globe. We feature Oriental, Iranian, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese and Russian typographic posters as well as a number of further references. This isn't a "best of", there is no ranking and the collection isn't supposed to be complete; it's rather subjective and quite random. All screenshots are clickable; however, links not always lead directly to the corresponding image (e.g. it's impossible in Flash-based sites) — sometimes you'll need to search for it. You may also want to take a look at the article Typography In Motion we've published few months ago. So what can be achieved out of simple letters and symbols? Please be patient, some screenshots are huge.
