Vintage Graphic Design: Classic Movie Bus Passes

April 05, 2012

Via Immortal Ephemera I came across this beautiful collection of vintage movie bus passes that were given in the 1940's in St. Louis. It's an extensive collection of 212 pieces that feature old movie stars and classic illustrations from the early stages of graphic design. Considering the printing techniques of that time, most of the passes are printed in two colours and the use of different typefaces and classic ornaments make these little pieces of graphic design history little gems. They're also a great insight of what advertising was in the U.S back in the day and how movie star looked like!
