It’s been a while since I dropped in on Andrew Holder and as far as I can tell, it looks like there is some new work in his portfolio (possibly even a new site). Either way, if you are unfamiliar with his work, it is a special retro-stylized treat.

You really have to appreciate the eye for spotting just the right retro/vintage imagery to create these undeniably cool photo-collage mashups. You can see the entire set in the Flickr-folio of Nick Blakeman (who really needs to make some prints of these by the way).

Yulia is an Israeli photographer who captures gorgeous retro-styled images of equally gorgeous women. It makes you want to wile away a romantic day at the beach and steal a kiss or two.

Wow, I seriously defy you to just try and find something more awesomely gratifying than Ben Pearce’s Flickr sets. Hours of pure enjoyment. His Retro set is classic.

You will need an account however, due to a little 70′s style nudity. A little retro nudity never hurt anyone.

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.
