Space Alphabet

In honor of Sputnik 1, 50 years later (on Oct. 4th), I present to you all a nice little gem of a book I got off of ebay about a year ago: Space Alphabet (1964) by Irene Zacks. Pictures by Peter P. Plasencia. It's the entire book. I normally don't do this, but it's just too good not to share it all.

Console Portraits: A 40-Year Pictorial History of Gaming

Forty years ago this month Ralph Baer -- a German-born inventor who fled to America from fascist Germany -- built and played the first home-video game. Called the "Brown Box" the proto-console was a nondescript unit powered by D-cells and wired to a black-and-white TV. "It's obvious that no one could have foreseen what it would develop into," Baer says today.

Steampunk Keyboard Mod

by 1 other
My goal with this project was to build a retro keyboard that was fully functional and of a sufficient quality that it could be used everyday by a touch typist. In order to achieve this I chose a high quality (though widely available) keyboard as my starting point. This is an IBM Model M "Clicky" keyboard. They were made starting in the mid 1980's and a version is still manufactured today. This particular keyboard was made in 1989 and shipped with and IBM PowerStation 530, a UNIX box the size of a kegerator.

Visuel de "campagne" pour Sarkozy

Une mouette au-dessus d'un paysage de campagne. La campagne pour rassurer, montrer l'incarnation concrète, la mouette pour incarner l'envol, le changement, le décollage. Nicolas Sarkozy, au centre, oeil fier et simple. Fausse campagne, comme dessinée, fausse mouette qui bouge dans un faux ciel. Presque faux Nicolas au centre, tant il est retouché. Police moderniste, carré-ronde. Tout ça est une réponse très cohérente à un brief complet. Mais est-elle pour autant pertinente, juste ? Le style est celui d'une communication des années 80, de la grande campagne publicitaire.

Vintage Concert Posters - Buy or Sell Concert Posters

An interesting mixture of cultural events started to change things in R&R in the sixties. With the arrival of the Beatles that began to take the music in a significantly different direction, garage band want-a-be's started popping up all over the place, but none so strong as Los Angeles and San Francisco. Peace, Love, Civil Rights, Antiwar and mind altering drugs mixed to start a steady stream of new edge rock with bands such as the Seeds, Doors, Mamas & Papas, Mothers, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver, Big Brother and a host of others. Not only was the music changing, but the way these bands presented themselves to the community and fans changed with new designs - gone were the old formats of boxing-style, block lettering and circus type traveling tour shows. The following are some of my favorites - ENJOY, the art is truly a delight, not to mention the flood of memories from such a great period.

Here are some audio clips and title sequence images from Bewitched. Copying, duplication or redistribution of any of these audio files and images without my prior written consent is prohibited.

The opening cartoon by Hanna-Barbera also had three versions. Seasons 1-2 (photographed in black-and-white), 3-5 and 6-8 (with Dick Sargent).

Bird in the Hand's photosets on Flickr

San Francisco artist, Lisa Congdon, was born in 1968 to a textile artist mother and physicist father. Through her mother’s influence, Lisa's love of art and craft began at a young age, though she has never had any formal artistic training. She uses her lack of training to her advantage; instead of relying on refined technique, she uses her own raw sense of what looks aesthetically pleasing as her guide.
