A beauty of a vintage desk calendar from the 70s. It has a simple rolling mechanism for each day, date and month. The friendly shape surrounds a minimal black face with white uppercase helvetica letters and numbers. Text is in german. Wishlisted.
These Vintage Metal Skates put a huge smile on my face. Oh, childhood memories.
‘Journey to the Center of a Triangle‘ (1976) 8m, dir. Bruce & Katharine Cornwell. Another fabulous film by the Cornwells, created on the Tektronics 4051 Graphics Terminal. Presents a series of animated constructions that determine the center of a variety of triangles, including such centers as circumcenter, incenter, centroid and orthocenter.
For fans of Mid-Century modern design, this classic image above from Playboy, July 1961 is like the Holy Grail. Design masters & fellow peers in their prime, beautifully captured in a time that was aesthetically crisp, uncluttered and innovative.
What a strange, yet intruiging Art Project: The Smoking Gun in the Kitchen, revealing the criminals behind our food.
Grab a coffee and a cookie and dive into the New York Public Library’s Photostream on Flickr. Amazing discoveries to be had.
These Acoustic listening devices were developed for the Dutch army as part of air defense systems research between World Wars 1 and 2. Made me look! Oh my!
From France this is a beast of a wall calendar measuring in at 17x16x1.5″. Inside the plastic frame sit 56 ‘windows’ which turn around to reveal the dates, month and day. The pattern alone, so retro, is *amazing* but when it is interspersed with numbers it is magnificent. Unique, collectible and in good vintage condition. And already SOLD. Bummer.
