Famous Inventions Showcased in Stylish Vintage Blueprints

If you're intrigued by how things are made, then Oliver Gal Artist Co.'s recreated vintage blueprints are a treat. The collective of artists scoured patents of old products and designed them into stylish and educational prints meant to hang on your wall. Some of the inventions include things as simple as a beer bottle, while others are more complicated, like the Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Each blueprint includes a technical drawing that details the intricacies of the object. There's a lot of history behind each image, and it's fascinating to look at something like the Wright Brothers Flying Machine and understand how they intended for it to work. Diagrams like these helped shape the word as we know it.

In addition to the deconstructed sketches, the prints provide information on the inventor, the date the patent was filed, and sometimes includes a short description. When you think about all of the complex gadgets we have now, the aged blueprints remind us that the spirit of innovation was alive a long time ago.

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
