One of the great blogs featuring vintage information designs out there is Slate’s Vault. The Vault is Slate’s “time-machine” blog, “dedicated to history at its most beautiful, strange, funny, and moving”, as the responsible for the space, Rebecca Onion, puts it.

Among the posts Rebecca offers on a daily basis, we often encounter old maps, graphics and diagrams, many of which have already been featured here, on Visual Loop’s Vintage InfoDesign. Our selection starts with three of those recent posts from The Vault – one to add to your RSS Feed, in case you haven’t’ already. And you can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

Hope you enjoy today’s picks!
