So I had this beauty in my grasp. I let go when I saw the near $100 price tag. Admiration is free. #typehunter #typehunting #badgehunting #vintageadvertising #tobacciana

Something weird is coming this way. I'll give you a has to do with weird stuff I've been digging lately. #typehunter #comingsoon #weirdcollaboration

I have a magical story to share with this post. A few years back while digging around on Flickr, I came across the creative work of @jeanmosambi I was such a fan that I built a board on Pinterest when it was gaining popularity as a tool to collect inspiration. Fast forward a bit and I found myself spending more time on Instagram as it gained popularity. I had forgotten about Jean's work, but was delighted to stumble upon his feed last year, I believe. I was reconnected to the vintage and mid-century inspired work. That brings me to today. Jean sent me a handmade envelope with lettering on the front and several screen printed gifts inside. The small card with the intricate bird has a hand written note to me. We live in a wonderful time where digital allows personal connections to be made. I've never gotten mail from France and certainly never with so many personal touches. It has made my week. Please check out Jean's stream and you will be inspired by the craftsmanship. We should find kind ways like this to share our talents. I'll treasure the experience and gifts. For the record, I will always be a raving fan of the beautiful chance design of make ready and test prints that are re-purposed into something else. #typehunter #jeanmosambi #screenprints I still have the Pinterest board I started

There she is, the Queen City Printing Ink Co. badge. She was out of Cincinnati and left her mark on many letterpress and lithographic works. She wins the award for holding standard high for #ohioquality #typehunter #vintageadvertising #vintageprint #billhead

I'm not really sure I get what's happening here, but I like it. #typehunter #vintageillustration

Definitely a good looking, vibrant label out of Brooklyn. #typehunter #vintageadvertising #vintagelabels #breweriana

How about this trio of ads adorning the cover of a 1940s New York National League score card? Between innings you could smoke Between The Acts cigars. #typehunter #vintageadvertising #baseballephemera

Wow on the type and numerals. Well done, 1892 typography. #typehunter #vintagetypography

I enjoy finding old things that are new to me like the interior of this baseball scorecard. They were popular during the 1940s and 50s. They're fun to look at because the often contained illustrations and wonderful lettered type. I also find the simple use of color, like this red and blue combo, to be a creative way to make most of a limited palette. #typehunter #vintageadvertising #baseballephemera #scorecards

Can't get enough of the powerhouse layouts used in Sinclair gasoline ads. I found the Power-X ad on the left and it lead to further digging. They were packed with dynamic type, simple illustrations and eye snatching colors. #typehunter #sinclair #vintageadvertising #petroliana

Home Light Oil advertising card with a great type lockup. Good looking drop shade in there as well. I definitely appreciate the color scheme. #typehunter #vintageadvertising
