Vintage Inspiration

Sometimes when I get tired of looking at contemporary design (although, that doesn't happen often) I look through old books from the early 1900's and 1800's. Much of the larger text on book covers and in illustrations of this time period is hand drawn. Just by doing a little hunting around at book sales, garage sales or in the library you can find lots of interesting examples of typography you won't find anywhere else. Check out the broad range of examples from this time period.

More cool stuff after the jump.
