Fresh 1950s-1970s Desktop Wallpapers

The Drawn! blog led me to this great German site that sells rolls of vintage wallpapers from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. I figured some of this physical wallpaper would make great virtual wallpaper, and by scanning in the patterns the friendly salespeople had done half the work for me.

I cropped the patterns down to their irreducible core, in some cases layering the provided swatch to create the full section, and provide them here as distracting and disturbingly retro desktop backgrounds. Just right-click on the image, Save As, and place as a tiled desktop background. Enjoy!
