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.

Sorry about that. :)
But I just couldn't pass up on the opportunity.

BTW, with the exception of the videos you posted a while back, I really enjoy your posts.

Cheers!
Love this 'Type"

You made my day. The water meter cover from Puerto Rico brought back childhood memories of mowing the lawn at our family house on the island. Thanks for an unexpected but pleasant trip back in time.

Love the image of the derelict building with the word 'modern' on the facade.

Another cracking set of images. Your selections are one of my highlights of the weekend.

Someone at design observer should write something on these legendary designers: Leroy Winbush, Georg Olden, Gail Anderson and Reynolds Ruffins.
