Drumroll For My Blogroll

As I am finally getting my blogroll together, a peek at a few of these visual bloggers who will now be just a click away.

A Journey Round My Skull
Strange, odd, illustration from obscure, far away places. What more could you want? Here's how Will describes his blog:
Unhealthy book fetishism from a reader, collector, and amateur historian of forgotten literature. Recent obsessions: illustration and graphic design.

llustration by Alexander Alexeieff, 1929

The Unknown Hipster
Not unknown to us. Who better to visually eavesdrop on Larry Gagosian and Mick Jagger at a Damien Hirst opening than Jean-Philippe Delhomme?

The Textile Blog
From the U.K. Just like the name says—plus links to every important textile resource out there.
Ann Macbeth rug design, 1905

Textile by Scandinavian Modernist, Sven Markelius, 1958

Mbuti barkcloth

You’ll only find it here, if it is old, printed, and truly remarkable.
Croatian genealogical book, 1740

Cutaway of a French nuclear power station, June 1978

Ace Jet 170
Belfast based graphic designer Richard Weston is impressively tuned into the nuances of print Here’s what he writes about Read Better, Read Faster.
No design credit, and some might claim to understand why, but I think there's an unsung hero at work on this sublimely balanced cover from 1976. Take that finger, for example (photo-credited to John Hybert by the way); positioned one third in. Now, you're telling me that's by accident?

...and wonderful found type.

Nothing is New
No one knows her way around the archives like Kelly Rakowski. She has been a huge inspiration for many of my far flung virtual adventures.

Grain edit
Frankly, I don’t know why the rest of us bother to post vintage graphics. Chances are anything cool from the 1950s-70s has been posted here already by Dave C + Elizabeth Surya’s crack team.

Little Augury
An aesthete of the highest order, Little Augury is a devotee of devastating beauty and high style, wherever it may be found, be it antique aristocratic elegance, black & white glamour, or uber-class decadence of a bygone era. Only the most rarified of today’s tastemakers make it onto the radar of this blogging interior designer.

Lots of vintage goodness.
