Aqua Velvet Blog

Aqua-Velvet is the brainchild of designer Amy Collier featuring contributions from art blogger Sandi Vincent. The sumptuous visuals are focused on graphic design, illustration and typography. "Plus other curiosities." The range of content and the guaranteed esoteric nature of the posts is the attraction here with the blog featuring designs found in old specialist magazines and in other mid-twentieth century graphic art forms. A look at Japanese illustration from the 1960s and 70s, Soviet propaganda posters and the latest posting on Swank interiors are some of the snippets to 'ooh' and 'ahh' over at your leisure.
