This is for VINTAGE images, not retro. NO PHOTOS. You may post material STRICTLY from 1945-1965. Children's books will most likely be deleted. The scans must be YOURS, not mined from the web or others' streams.

Group Description

NOTE: We are an illustration group. Please do not post photos. Children's book illustrations should be posted in our sister group, Retro Kid, which features vintage kid illos and graphics 1945-1965. Other child-related stuff: ads, magazine covers, magazine spreads, etc., should be okay here.

* * *

A place to post *anything* illustrated, from the period spanning 1945-1965.

We're looking for illustrations from sources including, but not limited to, magazines (including advertising), books, packaging, record album covers, etc.

We're not looking for any photography, even printed in mags or books, unless the typography that accompanies it is particularly special.

It's not that we don't love the cool editorial and advertising photography of the time, but our aim is to feature the illustration, graphic layout styles, and typography of the period.

Post as often and as much as you wish!

Group Rules

You may only post illustration, not photos. There are many groups for vintage ads and ephemera featuring photos.

You should pay careful attention to the dates of the items you are posting: they should be from 1945-1969.

Please keep children's book illustrations to a minimum -- one or two great examples from one source are okay. For more, there is the vintage children's book group, or the group Retro Kid.
