There is plenty of lyric and literature about looking over one’s shoulder in contemplation. What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now? This is the kind of question that comes out of nowhere. When it does and whether its context is personal or professional make very little difference. It’s a question that can cause emotions to rise and passions to run hot. It can trigger priority shifts and identity crises. It’s never easy to answer.
Three years ago, I published a font called Semilla. My aim with that was to distill the work of Bentele, a lettering artist from early 1950s Germany.

And maybe to pat myself on the back for surviving surprises mild and pleasant.

The guys from Designcut have released a new vintage bundle with very unusual and original content: a lot of resources for vintage graphics from 1700-1950. Usually, digital resources are simply modern day imitations of older vintage styles. This can be fine, but means that your work will lack a truly authentic vintage style. In the case of this bundle, all the resources below are incredibly rare items, originally from between 1700-1950. Each pack has a fascinating back story, with many items being secured following a rare-items auction, or a road-trip to recover them.
They’ve teamed up with some of the best vintage design providers in the world, to bring you our most authentic vintage collection yet.
This rare collection of vintage items is worth over $1000 at full price, but you can grab these thousands of beautiful items for just $28, or 97% off (the deal is 1 week left).
I can’t show you the whole content in a single post so I encourage you to see the lot of things that are included.
