Flickr Find | Penguin Books

Flickr Find is a weekly column of interesting things found on the amazing and inspiring photo sharing website Flickr.

The website AceJet170 is one of my favorite places for inspiration. If you have been to the site before, the set of Pelican books pictured below will make perfect sense to you. The too bad marketing and focus group research have made so many of today’s books so awful looking. At least you can still relish in the era of these beautiful Penguin books. All photos are from AceJet170. The complete Flickr collection can be seen here.

    Love those. Reminds me of the late 60s and early 70s.
