We're all familiar with contemporary identities, we come across and interact with them all the time. But I think it's good to have other sources to drawl inspiration from, as the past has a lot to offer. These sites and links having been making the rounds recently, but in case you missed them, or missed the chance to bookmark them, here are some inspiring samples of yesteryear. (and corresponding links to the larger full collections)

These quirky fellows are from Bookscans

This black and white group are just a few of many from a Flickr set by user Eric Carl, and are scans from a "mid-70's edition of the book World of Logotypes".

And finally these colorful creatures can be found on the Museum of Flight site.

Note: if you like these, Grain Edit posts a fantastic selection of work in this vain, both old and new. Lastly, to view Flickr sets much faster, I recommend Flickriver. Enjoy!
