Gene Gable’s articles on letterpress & retro design

One of the examples in CreativePro
Over the past few years, Gene Gable (an expert in visual communication with a 25 year career in publishing and graphic arts) has written an excellent series of articles for CreativePro, under the label “Heavy Metal Madness”.

The range of themes he deals with is eclectic and always surprising: Ice machines and vendors’ lettering, recruitment ads, religious imagery, decals graphics, dressing up animals in human clothing and whatnot.

With over fifty articles, this section of Creativepro would make certainly a superb book about some side dishes of graphic design that are equally fascinating. The text is insightful and is accompanied by many wonderful lettering examples, charming vintage illustrations and unexpected examples.
