Astute readers of this site will know that I can’t pass up a retro inspired iPhone case, from vintage book covers to vintage maps. Maybe it’s a longing for simpler times, when we had to memorize phone numbers, and never knew who was calling when the phone rang. Oh wait. No. I like progress. But I also like cases like these.
Going back to the days way before, the iPhone Cases from Cartolina are so pretty. Creative Director Fiona Richards collects antique engravings, block prints, and other ephemera to turn into stationery (you might recognize the designs from museum shops and high end boutiques) and now, phone cases.
I think the nods to European architecture or baroque design are pretty sweet, but it’s probably the New York typographical case that has my heart. No surprise. -Liz
