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.

Agree with @Nol Franklin - the second one from the top is positively mesmerizing. Anyone have more information on its creator(s)?

I love these inspiring images, do you search online, books, or a combination of bot?. I spend time looking online for inspiring images in the morning as well, but nothing as wonderful as these...

very interesting images especially the ones taking us back in history. who would have thought in 1955 a book would be openly talking about incest?!

Very interesting, Eric, thank You! Liked the range of diference between images, as about time, as about place) The are so personalized, powerful...can't find the right words.
We'll be waiting for some new from You, keep on! Cheers!

The only I can say about picture second from the top, it is an anouncement of a play "Trunk with stickers" in Leningrad national theatre of comedy)
