With hand-drawn typography influenced by a series of 1960’s John O’Hara novels, the Vintage design team has conjured up this playful new series.
By collecting all nine you can reveal the classic poster on the reverse. (see the magic happen on our Facebook page!)
The poster was supplied by the Science and Society Picture Library. It dates from 1910 and was a stock magic poster used by smaller acts where performance names could simply be inserted into a strip at the top of the image, which would explain why so many different types of magic acts are represented.
To be published October 2014 by Vintage.
I really want to buy these!
A look inside an artist’s home…
This is where all Toxic Vision is created.
Live to Create.
I want to kiss her.
Not because I want to feel the softness of her fair lips or the warmth of her breath as she exhales against me.
I want to kiss her because I can’t think of any other way to fully express the beauty that she is. I want her to know that I see her as perfect. That she is perfect."

An Accidental Ecosystem in an Abandoned Mall
Constructed in 1982 by the Kaew Fah Plaza Company, the 11-storey New World Mall enjoyed a brief period of success. It was soon shut down due to legal concerns and demolished. A fire left the place without a roof.
Without a roof, rainwater filled the basement and this pool of stagnant water soon became a breeding place for mosquitoes. Annoyed, the vendors in the neighborhood got together and released a few fish into the water, to get rid of the pesky mosquitoes. The fish multiplied quickly, and soon the building became home to a 500-square-meter miniature ecosystem for thousands of koi and catfish.
It is now a popular tourist destination.
