Poster Glory: Antique American Posters.

Kind of a weird FPP, since this seems to be just another antique store with an online presence...

Anyway, it reminded me that the Library of Congress will sell you prints of damn near anything in their catalog for dirt cheap. Start at the American Memory site and browse thousands of truly amazing posters, flyers, documents, and photos. We've purchased some beautiful WPA-era posters, including depictions of Adler Planetarium and Buckingham Fountain. A truly confusing ordering process, but highly recommended.

Other than a phrase I plan to start using in daily conversation, what is "Be Good to Tools" all about? Googling leads directly to this poster and nothing else (and... isn't there a Google-game where you try to find a one-link phrase?).

Wow. Bootiful stuff from a different age. Thanks, hama.

Of course, some of it seems familiar somehow...

...and does Micah Wright know about this?

Fun, heh!

some of these are way ahead of their time, as far as targeting niche markets go, hehe...
