Collection: Architectural Forum Magazine

 

Some faves from my collection of 60s and 70s era Architectural Forum magazine. The covers are so graphic and beautiful. For more covers and a nice, concise history of the magazine, visit Codex99.

Chicagotype, Greatest Hits

Our good friend David Sieren, president of the AIGA Chicago chapter, told me about a talk they have coming up that is very near and dear to my heart: typography in Chicago. For years, I kept up a blog of images of typographic signage in Chicago. Here’s a small sampling of the several hundred images over at chicagotype.com. And if you happen to be in Chicago, check out the event the AIGA is putting on in October.

Animated Covers by Henning M. Lederer

A couple years back, Mr. Lederer got in touch to say he was animating a bunch of the 60s- and 70s-era books covers we showcase over at our blog Book Worship. The resulting animation was incredibly cool—see it here. And he just let us know he did a new one with covers sourced from another design-obsessive, Julian Montague.

Collection: National Parks Brochures

Years ago, I took a massive solo road trip around the American Southwest. There’s a lot to see out there, and most of the big sights are National Parks, which means that with the price of admission came a copy of the well-designed brochure for that destination. Though they’ve changed a bit in recent years (a switch from Helvetica to Myriad, for example) they all adhered to the original, impressively-gridded system developed by Massimo Vignelli. The design accommodates anything a particular spot needs to convey, whether it’s a map, a montage of illustrated infographics, massive amounts of text—or all of the above. A design classic.

Collection: 45 Sleeves

It’s no secret we love records around here. But (pretty much) the only 45s in the collection are here solely because of the sleeves. Here’s a few examples.
