Vintage art reminds us of a time when we were dependent less on technology and more on skill and technique.
But we cannot compare the typography of 100 years ago to that of today, with the arrival of so many new typefaces, new ways to create fonts as well as new ways to get our artwork out into the world.
Even though the application of typography has evolved so much from a century ago until now, the most common use of typography continues to be for ads, store signs, and logos.
Below, you will find 50 typographic examples that exhibit a range of artistic styles from the last 100 years or so.
