Sheaff-ephemera.com is one of my favorite sites on the web. Whether you’re a designer, typographer, or just appreciate beautiful things, this site is a must. You can find collections of printed materials such as vintage photo ad cards to stamps. The Purely Visual gallery is a collection of envelopes, printed tags and more. Most of the items in the collection weren’t meant to be beautiful or small works of art, but are just that. Enjoy and check out the entire Purely Visual gallery here.
Zach Ferguson, Senior Designer at design firm Ptarmak, recently inherited some of his grandfather’s belongings. From the early 40’s to the 60’s his grandfather (Andrew Andros) was an avid Ham radio operator. Part of the items Zach inherited were QSL cards. These cards were exchanged between operators to confirm contact between operators. Check out Zach’s original post of the QSL cards.
Flickr user Pam Sattler has a great photo collection of the Neon Boneyard out in Las Vegas. The Boneyard is a time capsule for Las Vegas’ past with their collection including The Algiers Hotel, The Golden Nugget, and more. If you plan on being out in Las Vegas and blow through all your gambling money, check out the Boneyard.
