Photographic artist David Petr creates nostalgic portraits of our cultural history by drawing upon the forgotten details that time has erased. This line-up of mid-century, promotional pencils creates a warm palette of pastels and earth tones, juxtaposed with the pencils' quirky, typographical detail. Ads for the "Central Academy of Beauty Culture" and "Corn At Its Best" lay amongst the names of forgotten politicians and a reminder that "The Policeman Is Your Friend". This is an excellent piece for writers, educators, marketers, or anyone with a fondness for midcentury design.
