the return of IEDEI.

IEDEI is returning.

However, there are some changes.

The automotive archive for the past 4 years will remain, however this site is evolving into a site about much more than just automobiles.  My thoughts are evolving, and so IEDEI will also evolve.  From the beginning, the site was never meant to turn into a site only about the automobile—however unfortunately that is what happened to the site.  There will occasionally be articles about automobiles, however if one is expecting to find petrol being pumped through your monitor on every visit; this will not be the case.  There is much to see, much to appreciate, and much to investigate.  Onwards and onwards!

I hope you enjoy the new IEDEI.  If you ever want to contribute or if you have something fascinating (remember, not just automobile related)—please email me at IEDEIblog@gmail.com

I also want to thank the many of you who took the time to e-mail you all the kind words and wishes in regards to the blog ending a couple of months ago.  It was very nice to read your mails, and i’m still catching up on writing you all back.  I felt it was time to ‘start a new idea’….however i felt this site was already so developed and had such a lovely title and image, that it would just be more interesting to start a ‘2nd phase’ of this.

(the photo above was published in a 1931 copy of The Country Gentleman was a prediction of how a farmer will control his crops in the year 2030.  Nice flat screen TV design, huh?)

art: Leonello Design.

Leonello Design is a design company affiliated with the likes of Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, Zagato, and Touring Superleggera—-working on scale models and designs for them and other projects.

I’m not sure if any of them are available as prints or not, as not much is mentioned on their site.

the beautiful and dusty.

These photos may look like they are from 1968, however they are not.  They were photographed by Atelier Olschinsky in 2011 at the Red Bull Ring.  Quite lovely, as well.

the art of Nicolas Cancelier

Thanks to Motorsport Retro for turning me on to this artist, Nicolas Cancelier. Some great stuff going on here, I especially love the colours he is using to capture the time of these cars.  Very cool.   These are available for purchase as large, high quality prints as well.  Please inquire with Nicolas directly through the links provided.

alfa romeo art

I stumbled upon this great site called just Alfa Romeo Art, with tons and tons of Alfa Romeo artwork for sale in the form of prints in all sizes.  The prices aren’t uber expensive, but not cheap regular posters either.  I’m assuming these are high quality prints, and have been done by an assortment of different artists from all around the world.  If you’re an Alfa Romeo fanatic, i’m sure you’ll be tempted by something on that site.  So much great art there.  I’m tempted to bust out with a Montreal print myself.

some more art i REALLY loved from this site…
