RIP Creativity

These images all come from several series of note cards from a really cool ebay store. In response to a query about combining shipments, the spokesman regretted to inform me that the stationery was a failed line and had been canceled.

Oh, my despair…

But seriously–what?! I don’t doubt him, but how could that happen? These are pretty awesome designs: vintage looking pin-up girls, circus scenes, zoo posters, old-school burlesque dancers, commercial advertisements, and a really interesting rendering of the zodiac (not pictured). I don’t find stationery like this often; in fact, most artistic stationery tends to be too feminine to appeal to me. I would have thought this place would have a robust niche market.

Oh well. RIP creativity. Anyone know where I can find similar designs?
