Peek into the past

I'm now the proud owner of a greetings card collection from 70's :) I thought I'd post a few of my favourites. It's interesting how much sweeter the illustrations are, and how most of the cards are not heavily gender specific. Even cards just for boys had pink on and cute animals... the way it should be really :)

moustache mania

Anyone else noticing the rise of the humble moustache? I've seen quite a few moustache inspired designs on Pinterest knocking around, from quirky jewelry to t-shirts and cards. You know you've picked up on a trend when M&S launch a moustache related card. Hmm whether it's the effect of 'Movember' or David Beckhams latest cookie duster, it looks like the 'tash is 'hair to stay' (boom boom)...

Seaside Type

Ah my poor neglected blog : ( I've been too busy with work, renovating the house and the start of the VW camper season. I can't believe a month has skipped by.

We visited Whitby and Robin Hoods bay recently in our camper van, and I couldn't help but notice the amount of typography around this quirky seaside town. We had a fantastic time with loads of ice-cream and fish and chips, a boat ride out to sea and an open top bus ride - proper retro fun stuff ; )
