This Pack is Historically Accurate

Since I started RetroSupply 18 months ago I've become a serious collector of vintage books, catalogs and packaging. It inspires me and I just really enjoy seeing these objects around me.

Recently I discovered a rare and beautiful Army surplus catalog from the 1950s. I found it on eBay and had to have it. The bidding got pretty crazy (this catalog had some amazing illustrations and textures). I ended up spending $187 for this old catalog.

I can honestly say that when the carefully wrapped package came in the mail I opened it slowly and enjoyed admiring every page. Of course, the halftones, ink textures and lines were AMAZING. So I decided to convert it into vectors to share with you!

Here's How I Made the Textures

  • Purchased that 1950s Army Surplus catalog with the sweetest halftones I've ever seen (cost $200)
  • Scanned my favorite halftones, lines, and halftone interference patterns
  • Meticulously created brushes for Adobe Illustrator from the scans

If It's Good Enough for Chris DeLorenzo...

Chris DeLorenzo is one of my favorite designers of all time. If you haven't checked out his work you can see his stuff here:

Chris uses these brushes for his vector work. The work is truly incredible and it's pretty cool to see my halftones used in it!

[BONUS] Vectorizer Illustrator Action

We've also included a simple Illustrator action called the VectorTone Vectorizer. Just select your pattern, push Play on the action, and your textures will be converted to vectors!
