In Praise of Older Graphics


Munich 1972 - Official Guide, originally uploaded by insect54.

I really wanted a reason to post this other than just posting it, but I don't think I need one. This page from the 1972 Munich - Official Guide is one of many gems found within Flickr sets. It's heartening to know you can find a treasure trove of excellent and historical examples so easily. Every day it's becoming clearer to me that the Internet is really a multiple-Internet. Like an onion there is an Internet within the Internet within an Internet. There are worlds for pornography, motor sports, political fanatics and if you look carefully and keep your eyes open, an Internet devoted to the beauty of the history of graphic design. Thank you Inter-Internets.
