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.

Good set. I'm so curious to know the stories behind the first and the last.

The kebab lamp reminds me of a Richard Notkin work.

graphic design is a lie. we are whores to the man. we are hypocritical shadows of what we want to be. the "rebel" artist-designer who equates himself with counterculture and 'scene' is one who is in self denial.

To GraphicDesignByNight...

"The Man?"

"Rebels?"

"Scene?"

Gosh, that seems a bit "Angry".

Cheers,

I am one who wants to be creative and earn a living. That living will hopefully support the rebel.
