Bringing the past into the present
Love of books turned into love of old books, and all the fantastic nuances like page thickness, old fonts and especially illustrations.
We love the idea of capturing these antique and vintage images, and upcycling them into modern times. Antique text books, reference books and dictionaries serve as the source of our vector images. We found them delightful, and hope you do as well!
