hunting high & low

i have precious little time to do anything today, so i’m resorting to a shameless what i found on flickr recently post.

pin-up

am i becoming precitable? apologies but i can be a bit of a tart for vintage – especially if it’s bordering on kitsch. most of these pin-ups certainly fit the profile, and a couple of them are even rather classy. nothing like some fifties babes to start your weekend off on the good foot, though.

silky soft doo wop wonders

the fleetwoods – come softly to me (1959)

i’m not sure where i heard this song the first time, perhaps in the background of a video on youtube. but i LOVE it. sometimes doo-wop can be slightly annoying, but this is just right – would perfectly accompanying a scene in mad men.

wines of the cape

i discovered this rad little gem hidden in the depths of a bookcase at my parent’s house (as you do). it was printed in paarl in 1959. the entire thing is illustrated by roman waher, who i unfortunately can’t find any more information on (sometimes the internet doesn’t have all the answers, who knew?). after a bit of digging around all i could i could find out was that he contributed to a number of other africana books.

if you’re a fan of mid century illustration, be sure to check out this flickr group as well as the mid-century modernist.
