It's that time of year, the last few weekends have been car show-tastic so we have lots of new Auto Type
to post up. Here's the first batch - mainly American with a couple of British classics thrown in for good measure!
Check out the full collection here
Auto Type XXII
- Always a petrol heads dream, Goodwood Festival of Speed didn't disappoint again this year. Although there's a high percentage of new stuff, there's still plenty of oldies. Here's a selection... enjoy!
You can see our full collection of Auto Type here
and if classic cars get your blood pumping, check out our sister blog Super Ninety
for some beauties.
Auto Type XXI
- some home grown and some more exotic examples from Goodwood Breakfast Club and last weekends GRRC classic track day.
I think the Mercedes Unimog has got to be the favourite of this bunch, it's not everyday you see that and I really like the type.
Roll on Summer car shows, to re-stock the Auto Type vaults. In the meantime, check out the rest of my collection here
We're very excited to announce that a selection of our Hand Letterpressed & Saddle-stitched Notebooks and Happy Birthday Bunting Cards are now available at the lovely Barbican
They're also still available from AT open house
this weekend and in their online store
#124 - More fabulous Carte-de-visite
, some new additions to the reference box.
Both are from Sheffield, but from different studios; GV Yates, The City Studio (top) 'Portraits from life in oil or water colour'
and the lovely little embossed one (bottom) is from James Tulley, Landscape & Portrait photographer.

Huge thanks to Finola Gaynor for letting us know about You Are Here: Works by the legendary American graphic designer Lance Wyman
the Norwich University College of Arts - yes, finally a Lance Wyman exhibition in the UK!
Finola curated the exhibition which will be showing, "some of Wyman's most notable graphic design and wayfinding projects along with other rare and celebrated works such as Mexico's first commemorative stamp"
until 9 June 2012.
My favourite two pieces of his work are in the exhibition; the best ever Olympic poster (above) and elements from his US National Zoo signage that we posted about here
, so I really can't wait to see it. I feel a road rip coming on!
The Gallery at NUCA is open to the public Tuesday too Saturday, 12 to 5pm and admission is free.Image copyright Lance Wyman.
How great is it when you find a fantastic book at a super price and in a totally unexpected place? Well, this weekend I was fortunate enough to discover a copy of Walter Herdeg's, Graphis Annual 73/74
It's crammed full of wonderful design, typography and advertising including some from Milton Glaser and Herb Lubalin - above are only a very small selection of my favourites.
If you want a copy yourself, there are some available on Amazon

We're going to be part of the AT Open House
again in May this year, so every spare minute is being spent designing and printing, cards and notebook covers. Such great fun!
They'll soon be available on our Etsy store
too, so keep checking!
Auto type XX
- Lots more gorgeous marques including some English, Italian and American classics. I think these were taken at Goodwood Revival
last year, which is always an amazing gathering of classic cars.
It's been a long, long Winter of no car shows, so I'm already looking forward to the new season!
