Ye Olde Magazine Covers, or Design before Paris Hilton Ruled Earth

This is still beautiful.
I’d love to be a part of a design and illustration magazine with really old influences like the examples in this post.

If you’re interested in design and typography, check these out… Some of the lettering even looks hand crafted! It’s also interesting to note that there are typefaces used in these that are still used today. I’m always amazed to see very old typefaces in new contexts. Cooper Black is a very strong example of this, however ugly I may think it is. (Actually if you live anywhere near Moorooka in Brisbane, there’s a tyre shop called “Cooper’s Tyres” and the logotype is COOPER BLACK! A designer with a sense of humour obviously!)
