Pur­vey­ors of Pack­ag­ing | @pur­vey­ors_of_­pack­ag­ing

Es­tab­lished in 2014 by two Mid­west de­sign junkies, Pur­vey­ors of Pack­ag­ing chron­i­cles the crème de la crème of retro pack­ag­ing through a se­ries of neatly as­sem­bled in­di­vid­ual pho­to­graphs. The anony­mous cou­ple is on an on­go­ing mis­sion to sal­vage, archive and share vin­tage pack­age de­sign trea­sures with fel­low ap­pre­ci­a­tors through both their web­site and In­sta­gram ac­count.

James Ball | @docubyte

Award-win­ning Bri­tish pho­tog­ra­pher and dig­i­tal artist James Ball uses his In­sta­gram ac­count to show­case his col­or­ful min­i­mal­ist take on vin­tage ma­chin­ery with spe­cial fo­cus on the be­gin­nings of com­put­ing and the his­tory of Britain’s thriv­ing space in­dus­try. In­cred­i­bly pre­cise and ex­tremely well-doc­u­mented, each post un­folds as a vi­brant vis­ual amal­gam of style and his­tory.
