Original 1950’s vintage movie posters

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

I proudly present my collection of original Danish movie posters!

The collection consists of more than 100 different - all original, full size - colorful Danish movie posters from the period of 1950 to 1954.

All posters are the official Danish text versions of French, Spanish, Danish - but most of all popular American cinema titles like Tarzan, Raw Deal, Hong Kong, Come back, little Sheba - and many more!

A large amount of the posters have been drawn by the famous Danish Poster designer Aage Lundvald.

Cool 1980’s Atari badges!

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Admitted - this is a bit geekish! But never the less, I really like these original Atari badges from the early 80’s. I’m pretty sure they were handed out as souvenirs, to go along an Atari 2600 marketing campaign. Not for sale.

Original 1950’s Volvo 544 + VW van sales brochures

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

These vintage brochures are true graphical gems from the 1950’s when car illustrations wasn’t drawn in Illustrator or 3DSMAX but by hand!

I got hold of a bunch of old car sales material - everything from Morris Metro to MG and VW. A few pamphlet are remarkable better drawn than the rest - especially the two VW van booklets with 22 colorful pages and truly awesome illustration, but also the Volvo 544 got great images and illustration. I high res scanned all pages from the Volvo and VW brochures, and was planing to use the illustrations in graphical design - first of all just desktops but some are very suitable for etc. t-shirt print!

Below is an example of the smooth illustrations from the VW brochure! I also made a quick and dirty 4bit (8 color) desktop for your PC which can be downloaded here - it’s made up of MG, Volvo, Morris Metro and VW images.

Vintage original French Renault 4 poster

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

Today I picked up this gigantic Renault 4 poster - it measures a total height and width of 180cm x 120cm !! A perfect fit for the wall beside my toilet!

I believe this poster is from the late 70’s early 80’s - maybe even older.
