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.

It's not often I recognise something in the collection of images that make up Today. However, I did with the Kapoor. The website that image links to is fantastic in its own right.

Oh how I love the journey this column takes one on each week.

how arrogant of DO and Mr. Baker to think that whatever tickled his fancy on ffffound might actually be interesting to us. should we be impressed that Mr. Baker can surf the web? please do us all a favor and keep your cheese to yourself.

Clearly, ljn, you are in the minority; possibly a minority of one.
