Matthew Lyons work is a mix of retro and future, combining geometric shapes, desaturated colors, bold type, and occassionally some faux infographic elements. Really beautiful stuff!

Yep. It’s a trend. The vintage style, perfectly hand-drawn chalkboard lettering. So what if it’s overdone and cliche now. I love it and you can’t stop me! muahahaa..
Via Designspiration. Anyone know the actual artist of this?
Bella Brocante is starting to become a new spot for me. Lots of great ephemera. How do people find all this stuff for their collections!? I need to find a better flea market.
Vintage Infographics anyone?
I’m a sucker for journal style sketches with notes and drawings all over the place. I had no idea so much of Leonardo Da Vinci’s work was kept together in the Royal Collection. Their online collection is a BEAST. There’s just about everything in it. Go bookmark it!
Fun fact: Look at the handwriting- Da Vinci was left handed with dyslexia and, as a result, wrote most things backwards from right to left (as in, you could read it in a mirror).
I feel like a little kid. I just discovered these geniuses and I’m in love :) I saw it and was like a kid in a candy store. I had to get them and post them. STAT. (I needed this to kick my butt in gear with the blog. Starting a small business is quite time consuming!)

“By 1920 the gear-and-lever voting machine had become the official voting method in New York, Minnesota, California, Connecticut, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Utah, Colorado, Montana, Illinois, Washington, Massachusetts, and Kansas. The voting machine, pictured in Popular Science Monthly with a contemplative voter, became a symbol of good government and progressive reform.” -via American History
