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.

Terrific selection of images -- all over the place in time, space, and purpose, and wonderfully energizing.

Thanks!

I look forward to these every weekend, but I'm a little disappointed today. I really enjoy clicking on the images to see the source and (more often than not) find out about their contexts. please link more of the images.

I agree, captions, however brief, would add to our appreciation and understanding of the context.

WOW! Brings back lots of memories, I can remember going to the corner store at the age of 10 or 11 and buying my mom's cigarettes! I certainly remember those Viceroy's! Those days have passed and so has my mom, thanks for the trip back down memory lane!

My favorite set of images in a long time. Bueno.

I love the stark red A on the white and blue. It reminds me of Robert Motherwell's paintings.
