All My Eyes visual blog

All My Eyes visual blog All My Eyes is the new visual blog by former Fortune magazine graphics editor Linda Eckstein. Brilliantly edited, written, and curated, All My Eyes features visual inspiration from many visual disciplines, including poster design, packaging, photography, illustration, information graphics, found objects, historical paraphernalia, and much more. Eckstein draws on an impressive knowledge of contemporary and archival sources to present images that delight, inspire, and educate. 

Recent posts include: photos from the Life archive of 1950s ice skaters, Chinese Tiger firecracker labels, the photography of Dora Kallmus, vintage copies of early 1900s NAACP magazine The Crisis, 1960 jewelry advertisements, and a collection of Argentinian bus tickets. The images are accompanied by simple, elegant prose. This is hands-down my favorite visual blog of the moment, and it keeps getting better with every post. All My Eyes is essential viewing.
