I've been sending out Today's Inspiration for about four years now and the list has grown from its original nine or so members to well over two hundred! A lot of folks have never seen some of those early scans. Well now there's a place where you can peruse the contents of the TI vaults, plus many other images contributed and compiled by other scanologists. Mid-Century in Print is, as grand poobah and all around groovy grrrl, ticky tacky puts it...
"A place to post *anything* printed, for *any* audience, from the period spanning 1945-1965 (with a little latitude on either end).
This includes, but is not limited to, illustrations from magazines (including advertising), books, packaging, record album covers, etc."
Not only can you see, you can do! As in DO join and DO contribute the illustrated visual ephemera of the mid-20th century you have stashed in your dusty closets, attics and studios!
I signed on as Assistant-Chief-Cook-and-Bottle-Washer so I really hope you all visit, bookmark and join Mid-Century and rev up yer scanners and start uploadin'!
