Scarfolk Council

“Scarfolk is a town in North West England that did not progress beyond 1979. Instead, the entire decade of the 1970s loops ad infinitum. Here in Scarfolk, pagan rituals blend seamlessly with science; hauntology is a compulsory subject at school, and everyone must be in bed by 8pm because they are perpetually running a slight fever. ‘Visit Scarfolk today. Our number one priority is keeping rabies at bay.’ For more information please reread.”

“We designed the site and structured the data specifically with design artifacts and graphic designers in mind. After you’ve browsed the highlights from the homepage, we encourage you to use the search filters: click on each category to explore disciplines like lettering, and formats like type specimens, or combine filters like decades and countries to narrow your view to a specific time and place.”

50 Watts

“Originally called Journey Around My Skull [and now called 50 Watts], the site started as an old-fashioned book blog, what Schofield calls an ‘I like this book and you should read it’ blog. From the beginning he included the book covers, so it had a visual component. ‘Sometime in 2008 I trash-picked Biology Today, an early-1970s textbook with fantastically strange illustrations,’ he says. ‘I featured the book and got a lot of positive feedback. Soon I started to collect illustrated books and to contact artists about showcasing their work, and the blog morphed into its graphic-intensive state.'”
