What’s this?

The antiquated illustrations in this Flickr set are charming, but what I find really terrific is that many of them capture the artifacts of the mechanical paste-up process that used to define the craft.

Yellowed masking tape, the texture of illustration board, colored pencil markings, rubber stamps… you don’t see that stuff much, even though vintage art can be found in abundance on sites like Pinterest. View the full Flickr set.
