Inspirations: Vintage Books no.3

I found this book during one of my used book shop hunts. The inside of the book contains reproductions of ship sailing cards that were used for advertising specific ships and voyages. However, what really drew my attention was the cover. The solid shapes and color scheme are reminiscent of the designs that many screenprinters and digital vector artists try to replicate today.
