DESIGN | Menus of the 50s and 60s


As fashion continues to take design cues from the 20th century—from 50s architecture (Dana Lee's Spring/Summer collection was inspired by the color palette of Russel Wright as one example) to 80s surfwear and outdoor brands—this trove of old restaurant menus from the 1950s and 1960s seemed like a fun share. I love how playful they are and the colors and fonts are endlessly inspirational. All found via the LA Public Library.
