Required: 50 Posters that Rocked the World
A pitch came in my email from xerox.com -- which I haven't heard from in a decade -- and WOW ... I call this really required reading . . . it opens :
Posters look forward to future events and memorialize the past. At times a celebration, at times a call to action, they are both works of art and printed artifacts of their age.
The best posters don’t just illustrate history –- they shape it. Those are our kind of posters. We’ve brought together 50 custom poster prints that rocked our world (or the world of printing, graphics and art) in big and small ways.

The Most Satisfying Videos In The World
Okay ... not necessarily about graphic design, typography or illustration, but hey -- this is ALL ABOUT the visual creative experience. As a graphic designer, you should visit one of these videos at least once a week. And, there are hundreds. Someone writes :
Have you ever seen something that makes your skin tingle and for some unknown reason provides you with a sense of unbridled peace and happiness?
The most satisfying collection of videos in the world
When we say COLOR ... we mean COLOR!
