Inspiration Feed: Peculiar Manicle
I love design from the 60s and 70s. It felt like a timeline where the motto was “Anything goes”. Bright colors and innuendos that would make your Granny blush. Even on Hallmark cards and calendars! Say, “Hallmark,” today and people think: 24/7 made-for-tv Christmas movies that are tamer than tame. Not a cleavage line in site, never a swear word muttered, and an hour and a half to get one passionless kiss in the last 2 minutes. Turns out Hallmark didn’t always used to be so tightly wound.
Was digging through one of my new favorite inspiration blogs, Peculiar Manicle, and found a treasure trove of Hallmark greeting card company goods (from books to calendars) released in the 60s and 70s, and 100% created by people tripping balls. Scroll down for a few of the best, but definitely check out Peculiar Manicle for more awesome psychedelic, mod, retro design and typography!
