Japanese Designs (1902) In this section of the site we bring you curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include visions of the future from late 19th century France, a dictionary of Victorian slang and a film showing the very talented “hand-farting” farmer of Michigan.

Kunstformen der Natur. Insects : their life-histories and habits. Harry Clarke’s Looking Glass. With their intricate line and often ghoulish tone, the works of Irish artist Harry Clarke are amongst the most striking in the history of illustration and stained glass design. Kelly Sullivan explores how, unknown to many at the time, Clarke took to including his own face in many of his pictures. The Irish stained glass artist and illustrator Harry Clarke was prolific, producing, in his short life, over a hundred stained glass windows. But beyond Ireland, it was his illustrations which brought him international renown, particularly in the United States where printers flooded the market with pirated editions of the six illustrated books he produced between 1915 and 1931.

His illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination, published by George G. Harrap, London, in 1919 and reissued in 1923, was his most popular work, a macabre exploration of the human psyche. His self-portraits figure in his stained glass from the very start. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 8. Further Reading. Vojtěch Preissig. Identify Fonts - The Font Squirrel Matcherator. Twwwitter.

Top Ten Typefaces Used by Book Design Winners. The American Association of University Presses (AAUP) holds an annual Book, Jacket & Journal Show which catalogs the best in book design and exhibits it around the country. The jurors for this year’s show include some important names in typography, including William Drentel and Jessica Helfand of Design Observer, and typographer and type designer Kent Lew, who created the Font Bureau’s lovely and literary text face, Whitman. Jessica Helfand, William Drentel, Susan Colberg, and Kent Lew examine AAUP Show entries. The catalog of the show is a beautiful record of the selected entries, and, because typeface credits are included, it’s also a good gauge of current trends in typeface selection for books and journals.

We ordered catalogs from the last three years of the show and tallied the typefaces used. The results won’t shock you — each of the top ten is a tried-and-true classic. Yet there is so much more great type out there begging to be used for academic text and titling. 1. Alternatives: Fonts - Swiss Typefaces.

Mapping time has long been an interest of cartographers.

Visualizing historical events in a timeline or chart or diagram is an effective way to show the rise and fall of empires and states, religious history, and important human and natural occurrences. We have over 100 examples in the Rumsey Map Collection, ranging in date from 1770 to 1967. We highlight a few below. Sebastian Adams' 1881 Synchronological Chart of Universal History is 23 feet long and shows 5,885 years of history, from 4004 B.C. to 1881 A.D.

It is the longest timeline we have seen. Below is a close up detail of a very small part of the chart: (click on the title or the image to open up the full chart) Another detail covering a larger area with the chart turned sideways: Eugene Pick published the Tableau de L'Histoire Universelle in 1858 in two sheets, one for the Eastern Hemisphere (shown here) and one for the Western Hemisphere.

Bills Dingbats (bid_____.ttf) Přijatelně namalovaná směska symbolů od šipek a vignet až po šrouby a sklenky vína. Nic mimořádného, ale pár z nich by se někdy mohlo hodit. Cindy Arrows (carrows.ttf) Fůra šipek, některé méně obvyklé – ostatně šipek není nikdy dost.

Davys Regular (dad.ttf) Dingbat Davida Rakowskiho – kuriosní výběr různých vignet, zarážek a obrázků z anglické typografie přelomu století. Font má skoro 200 kB, takže programy slabší povahy na něm okamžitě kolabují. Některé značky jsou sice velmi hezké, nicméně pro praktické použití je třeba z nich ty požadované vybrat a uložit do vlastního fontu použitelné délky. Davys Other Dingbats (daod.ttf) Další vignety téže provenience a kvality; obsazených pozic je tentokrát méně, takže délka fontu je zhruba poloviční. Atech Dingbat 2 (ding2.ttf) Pár zajímavějších vignet plus pestrá směs symbolů, technicky uspokojivé kvality.

Full-Length Arrival Trailer Threatens Alien Annihilation. When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team, lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams), is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers. To find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. Last week, Paramount Pictures released the teaser trailer for Arrival.

Today, we get the full trailer, which continues the story of linguist Banks as she races against the clock to stop alien annihilation on a global scale. This latest sneak peek further explains the alien invasion, how they communicate, and why other countries around the world may not have the patience to wait before all out war breaks the planet in half. Jeremy Renner stars as a theoretical physicist who is trying to determine what the aliens really want alongside Banks. Share Video. Boijmans Collection Online | Middle Age Utensils. With the church as the centre of cultural life in the late Middle Ages, many costly liturgical objects were made for Catholic worship.

Religious objects, such as communion cups, fonts, pyxides (small containers to carry the Host) and incense burners influenced the tastes of the well-to-do. Small devotional items, such as diptychs, small figures, writing tablets and draughtsmen with religious representations were made from exotic materials such as ivory and gold. Lead-tin pilgrim badges were produced as mementos of visits to places of pilgrimage. Household Effects made of Pewter and Brass In the late Middle Ages luxury objects made of brass and bronze were produced mainly in the Meuse valley (Dinant) and Germany (Hildesheim and Nuremburg) and exported to several European countries.

Pewter objects for everyday use, such as dishes, salts, drinking vessels, flagons and religious accessories, such as fonts, pyxides and pilgrim flasks, were chiefly made in the Low Countries.

Modern type display and the use of type ornament : Wyse, Henry Taylor, 1870- Patterns of Ornament: Technology and Theory in Contemporary Architectural Decoration – SVA MA Design Research. “Decoration… is suited to simple races, peasants and savages,” argued Le Corbusier in his 1923 publication, Vers Une Architecture. He continued, “Harmony and proportion incite the intellectual faculties and arrest the man of culture.” Le Corbusier was not the first to believe that ornament hindered societal development. With his statement, Le Corbusier announced his allegiance with earlier advocates of strict functionalism like Adolf Loos, author of “Ornament in Crime” from 1908, who had aggressively argued against the dominance of the popular decorative styles of Art Nouveau and the Vienna Secession.

While Modernist arguments against ornament emphasized that decoration had previously been used as a distraction from the inevitable flaws of handcraftsmanship, today’s technological innovations have allowed architects to turn this functionalist argument back on itself. —in a series of five “Pop Gothic” gables, rich with cookie-cutter tracery.

THE Soap | Minimalissimo. A bar of soap is expectedly a straightforward product, as well as the packaging for such an everyday item. Normally stacked beside a vast wall of options in retail, colour is the preferred device to differentiate itself from saturated designs. Sometimes aiming for the complete opposite is the perfect antidote. Designed by Manabu Mizuno for Japanese brand THE, with a mission to put forth archetypal goods, comes along THE Soap.

The branding and package design says it all, as honest as a product can be: a pictogram-like representation of the soap with beautiful sans-serif typography. Shamelessly embracing the elegance and all the benefits of minimalism, their epitome for a great soap is as simple as can be; but looks can be deceiving. THE Soap goes through a slow and unusual process for such merchandise, taking advantage of a traditional method called ‘wakuneri’.
