Westvaco I

I was scoping out WeLoveTypography the other day (as I often do), and I came across a beautiful typographical image that linked over to Design & Typo, le Blog. There, I discovered the mother-load: tons more of similarly amazing designs from two separate Westvaco manuals.

Images from Westvaco Promotion Guide #1 (1956-1961):

I will post images from the second manual in a new post. Stay tuned!

Vintage Postage: Israel’s 1972 Education series

You’re not going to believe the ridiculous level of coolness owned by the vintage stamp designs I’m about to show you, which I discovered earlier today via Vintage Postage Stamps (a new Tumblr find that for which I have extremely high hopes). These little gems hail from Israel and were designed in 1972 as part of their Education series, which is comprised of four different stamp designs, each symbolizing a different stage of education (from the website of the Israel Philatelic Federation (IPF)):

I. Elementary school, the tab reading: “The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom… ” (Proverbs 4:7)


II. Secondary school, the tab reading: “Train upon a child in the way he should go… ” (Proverbs 22:6)

III. Vocational training, the tab reading: “…but all study of the law without labor
comes to naught at the last… ” (Pirkei Aboth 2)

IV. Academic training, the tab reading: “…but you shall meditate on it day and night… ” (Joshua 1:8)

Aren’t they gorgeous? More details for the series and each stamp design can be found at the IPF’s website HERE.

Yours in educational stamp glory,

Kiddie Records Weekly

Unbelievable site that I recently discovered somehow (if I could retrace the site-to-site-to-site-ad infinitum itinerary, I promise I would.): Kiddie Records Weekly: Classics from the Golden Age. Kiddie Records Weekly features a weekly selection of  vintage children’s album designs. Their archives are enormous, AND they stream all the audio! It’s pure old-school craziness! Go forth and enjoy. And, for now, here are some of my faves (but I still have stacks to pore through):

Aren’t they amazing? Love them. Love the colors, love the type, love the illustrations… love it all.

Covered, brought to you by the color orange.
