Shelf Appeal has a soft spot for illustrations of museums. Museum is my key word. I like old illustrations of museums. I like new illustrations of museums.
I just found these dinosaur / Museum of Natural History cuties by Dutch illustrator Maya Stepien. I was on one of my winding paths across the internet, looking at typography conferences I’ll never get to. I found an illustration of a type designer by Maya. I looked her up. And I like her work. A lot.
And then I saw Maya’s museum illustrations. And then I had to write a little bit more. She has on her website a nice set of prints called Nautical Geometry that are also most pleasing.
And some super portraits that make me want one of myself. For myself.
