These are pages out of Cassell’s Illustrated Almanac from 1882. Lots of great ads from all sorts of industries- printing presses, sewing machines, gout remedies, brandy, paints, watches, kettles. They take being a “one stop shop” to a whole new level. Most ads seems to be for shops in Paris and London. Via Land of Nod.

Nathan Yoder has a cool illustrative style with a vintage vibe. Nice textures, cool hand-lettered typography and interesting details like arrows and banners that all come together to scream vintage patriot. You can see his work here and you can get free wallpaper downloads here.
I especially love the Natural Body Back Brace that “Cures Women“! How exciting is that? I’ve been waiting ages to be cured. Aanndd, it can be worn with OR without a corset. Bam. Double Whammy. This isn’t one of those simple little bands like heavy movers use- oh no. This straps around your entire body, making every single limb feel extra important. Bonus: you can easily become a dues ex machina.
