Terrific collection this week! Who did the music in the Leger ballet? The rune stone (last image) is beautiful!

I saw/heard Ballet Mecanique "performed" by mechanized instruments at the National Gallery of Art a couple of years ago. Nice to see the Dada visuals! Thanks, John.

yeah, I doubt tumblr blogs are the "original source" for these images. Actual citations or at least identification of creator/artist/photographer would be helpful.
