Philately Fridays: Mongolia, 1980

Three stamps from Mongolia for the 1980 Summer Olympic Games in Moscow, Russia. I love how the ornate patterns and the flat illustration style both manage to play off of the great 1980 Olympics logo. It just... works.

Mattel Electronics' Horse Race Analyzer

I stumbled across this 1979 handheld device / game / gambling assistant in a flea market a few months ago. Had to share it here for the beautiful graphics. That horse race icon is too perfect.
