Here are Today’s images.


























































TODAY is a weekly jewel box of seemingly random, yet thoughtfully selected, images. At times tender, wicked, nostalgic, amusing, and dazzling, each edition is presented without narration, editing or explanation by its author, designer Eric Baker. "It all began as a goof. One day I sent a good friend about 50 random pictures of cheese. I don't know why, but to me cheese is funny, perhaps it is the word itself and its various connotations. Eventually I began looking closer, or should I say broader at 'things'. Things lost on the fringes...ordinary, odd, beautiful things. Esoteric images, old diagrams, typography, cartography — visions of a once promising but now extinct future."

Editor's Note: All images link to their original source and are copyright their original owners.

Thanks for the great post. But do you really think that their extinct future is any more promising than our own? I would disagree.

Many of these depictions are so limited, so limiting. I like them for nostalgic sentiment but I'm sure that we know much more of hope and promise than did these subjects or their artists.

Always makes my morning, and this might have made my week. Thanks again.
