Wellcome Award Images

Silkworm Trachea

Lovely abstract stuff from the Wellcome Image Awards. All microscopic scientific imagery, some of it is surprisingly beautiful. The Silkworm Trachea above I thought was lovely, and the red blood cells are particularly arresting too.

Full gallery.

Lovely Christmas patterns from Lotta Bruhn. Those birds definitely have an edge of Charley Harper about them - no bad thing...



Found an interesting site today via Veer put together by someone who works at a stock photography agency. Apparently they just want to share all this visual candyfloss with the world out of the goodness of their heart. Hmmm. Think I have to agree with The Denver Egotist's views on it's innocence, but it's interesting non-the-less. The main gallery part of the site is comprised of photo-montages using a variety of available stock, but the blog of what's 'just crossed the desk' is an interesting look too.

French Found Type
In-keeping with my French mood at the moment, I found the fantastic Jules Vernacular blog full of French found type today. There's some lovely stuff on there.

Wanderlust Map

There's a really nice interactive map featuring famous routes on the Good Magazine website. It's a little light on information once you get into it but it could be really interesting if/as it grows. (And why haven't Google maps done this already?)

Chateau Sign

Spotted this sign while I was in France - lovely. A bit Rob Ryan I thought - the people remind me a bit of the Crooked Man on this book cover.
