1930s fashion plates

Beautiful fashion plates. The ref and white dress certainly makes a statement.

Vintage Christmas and New Year cards

Some of these are amazing and truly capture the Art Deco feel of the time. Others are just plain cute or caught my eye due to their catchy design and imagery.

Summer is coming…

I love this cover illustration from the 1932 magazine, Vintage American. Seemed appropriate as the warmer weather approaches here in Australia. I also adore her outfit!

1920s/30s ‘Bibendum’ (Michelin Man) posters

As a kid I always liked the old version of the Michelin Man. My dad restores vintage cars and many of his friends in the vintage car club he belongs to collect old MM tin signs and paraphernalia.

Best of all, I love the old cigar toking, monocle-sporting, mummy-esque looking ‘Bibendum’ (his real name) of the 20s and 30s. He’s kinda scary looking but so very, very cool and sophisticated. Nothing like the lame ‘cartoonish’ Michelin Man of today who looks like he’s advertising children’s cereal.
