A coworker of mine was sifting through this Flickr collection earlier this week. I noticed some really interesting images flashing across his screen and inquired as to what he was looking at and he said someone had emailed him a link to this really interesting collection of 1950’s through 70’s advertising.

The account claims that you can find Posters, Magazine Advertisements, Brochures, Booklets, Publishing, Calendars, Greeting Cards, Packaging, Logotypes, Trade-Marks, Letterheads, Exhibitions, Show-windows… Graphic design, illustrations and printed artwork in general all from the the 50’s and 60’s era. It’s an interesting study in design and there is definitely a bit of inspiration to be found.

    Re: A long time, Nationally known Massachusetts Illustrator’s New Website

    I am writing to make you aware of one of Illustration’s’ forgotten Art treasures. Charles Kerins, a nationally renown artist had his studios in Scituate, MA for over 30 years.

    Here is a new website dedicate to his Artwork. http://www.CharlesKerins.com

    Yeah, that Bush and his 1950’s to 1970’s advertising. Boy, I swear I will never forgive him for that.
