I’m sure I’m not the only one who endures Ephemera Image Overstimulation (EIS) on a regular basis. There’s probably even a support group. But, for now, I’m just going to post some of the things I’ve found in the past day or two and try to make room for more. Woe is the vintage-ologist who just can’t get enough… and who realizes that there will always be more ephemera to ogle and tuck away in his/her mind’s eye.
Right now I’m tucking away Mikey Ashworth’s Old Airlines Ephemera Flickr set:
And I’m also en route to tucking away these little pieces of airline ephemera greatness:

From Bedazzled (yes, that’s really the blog name)

Pan tu nie stał, meaning You Were Not Standing Here, is a Polish design blog created by sociologist Justyna Burzyńska and graphic designer Maciej Lebiedowicz, who are heavily inspired by vintage Polish designs from the 1930s onward. But that’s not all: they also have a shop by the same name, which features clothing, home decor, accessories, and paper products. Oh, and did I mention that they ROCK?
All of the beautifully vibrant and inspiring images above are borrowed from their blog, which you can access (along with their shop) HERE.

I’m not sure I could be any more in love with these vintage posters over at GrainEdit today (especially the Swiss one):
More HERE. GrainEdit rules, huh? I pretty much swoon over everything posted on their blog.
