Design is Fine. History is Mine.

Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun digging through the archives of the always excellent “Design is Fine. History is Mine.” blog.

Run by a German lecturer Rea Riegel, it’s the perfect blend of design and historical context. She is, to say nothing of her curatorial sense, a wonderful archiver—her tags offer searchable collections of posts on design-related work starting with the B.C. time period, carrying through the Middle Ages, and culminating in a beautiful stuck landing on the 1990’s (head-scratcher of a decade though it occasionally was). No matter—Rea finds the beauty in everything.

Whether you’re looking for some inspiration by subject / era / color or just poking around for fun, check out Design is Fine right here.
