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.

I’ve been following Eric’s collections for a while now. I cannot believe the quality of images he finds. We all have those collections, if only in our minds, not in our drawers, but he actually pulls them together and even gives us the sources.

Not many things on the web give me as much pleasure, inspiration and encouragement as the TODAY column.

Had to be said.

Hey: check the time I posted this! Unintentional but meaningful I’m sure. This one’s for you, Eric.

I have known Eric for over 20 years and love that he is still collecting. I will be scanning something special for you, Eric in the next few days from the former "DDR".

Your postings make my eyes smile. I've been following your collections for a while now and agree with Mr. Spiekermann that "Not many things on the web give me as much pleasure, inspiration and encouragement".
More please?
