ffffound - graphic design

Some awfully beautiful and interesting things I have found at www.ffffound.com recently.


Incredible pencil advertisements by Paul Gabor via The Silver Lining.

Vintage book cover from here.

Book cover via We Heart It.

A ticket to L'Exposition Coloniale Internationale, Paris, 1931. From here.

Some Thoughts On The Common Toad - designed by David Pearson, illustration by Joe McLaren,

Spare Our Trees poster - the link to this piece is broken - looks like it was produced in the 1930s but then again it could be modern! Beautiful design

This vintage book on "Paper Toys" was found by Scott Balmer, an illustrator in the UK. Wonderful graphics and type treatment.

I love that you love this stuff. I appreciate it ... but I don't covet it. It certainly is something I can look at for inspiration though. Do you collect and display pieces like this Fiona? I would love to see how you do it.
