In honor of the Day of Green, here are some Vintage Irish Books. I could spend all day here, looking at all the amazing archives, but I’ll have to come back to it, because I’m off to enjoy a pint of Guinness for breakfast.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone. Slainte.

Boston Public Library—Travel Posters

bostonpubliclibrary-travelposter

The Boston Public Library’s Print Department is home to more than 350 vintage travel posters, most dating from the 1920s-1940s, the “Golden Age of Travel.”

Found this link while cruising the Coudal section of the internet this morning and was blown away by how absolutely incredible this collection of posters is.

The Great Britain poster above, is one of the most well designed pieces I’ve ever seen. It’s so good, that it prompted me out of my blogging-sabbatical. I also posted some of my other favorites on the ole BS Report Tumblr.

Take the time and check them all out.

Just for some inspiration. Call me a grey-beard or say I dwell on the past, but I wish so much that this was the license plate I could have on my car.

More old California plates.

CL!CK: A LEGO Short Film

LEGOs will forever be on my favorites list. Especially if they keep making amazing short films and commercials.

Well done, indeed.

And from the “Wished I Thought of That” department…

You know you’ve taken something from the curb too, imagine if you were followed and interviewed about one of your curb-treasures.
