Vintage graphics are such a major source of inspiration for new design developments. Patternbank aims to deliver vintage print & graphics for direction and inspiration in layout, colour use and typography. We stumbled across this amazing and stimulating collection of U.S airline baggage tickets. Covering the 50s, 60s and 70s, this collection is a rich source of of graphic inspiration. Flickr member MR38 has over 1000 ticket examples that show off great colour combos and typography trends of that time. Get lost at MR38 Flickr site now, just make sure you have a good hour or so spare !
