There are still a few spots to polish, but I thought readers would appreciate a sneak peek at another project of the Mid-Century Modernist. Chromeography is dedicated to the chrome logos and lettering affixed to vintage automobiles and electric appliances — those unsung metal emblems and badges that are overlooked, forgotten, damaged, lost to time or the dump.
The site is simply an interactive gallery you can explore by make/model, decade, color, and lettering style. There are also tags for emblems which are not on cars but appliances and gadgets like refrigerators and cameras.
So go ahead and bask in the gleam. Your feedback and photo submissions are welcome.
