I really like these images from the series "Love Motel" by photographer Baldomero Fernandez. They beautifully portray the mix of kitsch and exoticism that makes retro motels so intriguing. Click here to see more of his incredible work.

The Age of Mackerels series from The Worlds Best Loved Art Treasures features charming and bizarre mash-ups of those classic kitsch porcelain figures found on nic- nac shelves the world over. See more of this great "collection of reconfigured cultural debris" here.

I found this treasure in the basement of a used bookstore in upstate N.Y.. Published in 1939 by McGraw -Hill, it's full of vintage border designs, and also includes tips on using them to make your advertising type 'more beautiful'. A steal for 4 bucks.
