Illustrations and Designs for General Use

January 6th, 2014 · 4 Comments

Happy New Year!  I’ll get started with a few pages from Illustrations and Designs for General Use, published by Speed-O-Print in 1944.  It’s a box containing a hundred sheets of artwork, to be traced for stencil duplication.  There are many graphic delights on those pages; here are three examples.  As always, please click to enlarge.

    I was just telling my graphic designer girlfriend I wish I was more artistically inclined as I would love to be able to design my own decks of tarot cards.
    Does anyone know if this or something similar is available today?
    Thanks

    I think you can find copyright-free clip art nowadays. It may not be as tasty as this, though!

    beautiful…life then seems so distant. When I was a kid, these seemed so recent!
