Thanks to the always engaging Kottke, we are re-acquainted with the meticulous and dedicated assemblage of mostly defunct corporate logos from graphic design artist Reagan Ray, informed by the public’s captivation with and appetite for Mid-Century Modern and nostalgia for the glory days of air travel, with this curated collection of US regional carriers in what was once a pretty saturated and granular market.
Who knew that Anniston was once headquarters for the commuter airline Alair—AL for Alabama but certainly not the only option for the state? Or that Oakland, California once had Saturn as a carrier? Browse with caution as poking around the various archives and collections could easily turn to an all day distraction.
