Apologies for the long hiatus. A few links and things collected over the past week or two, with no apologies for the lack of a thread bringing them all together / Charing Cross - the fading world of books (via me-fi) / Paul Virilio's Bunker Archaeology gets the tmn gallery treatment / I LEGO NY.

Channel Beta, an 'information Channel on Contemporary Architecture' - a sort of portal for aspiring starchitects / The Lost Synagogues of Detroit. Amazing urban archaeology of a building form one doesn't expect to see abandoned / illustration by Lisa Hanawalt / Anna the Red's Bento Factory. The Totoro Snowman is especially spectacular / applying every filter.

Classic Shorts, a short story repository / paintings by Peter Wylie (via architects' journal / who was really responsible for that piece of work? / Fusion Anomaly is stuck in a day-glo timewarp, but no less interesting for that / supercomputer, 1960s style, from the East German film Der Schweigende Stern. More at Veoh, which seems like YouTube's poor relation right now.

Books from Finland, with which things has close affinity with, has a new website. Recommended / the Adam and Joe Back Catalogue / one piece, an art weblog / new design for American taxi is rather disappointing, especially given the conceptual precedents. Even if cabs never fly, the problem seems to be a literal creative bankruptcy, rather than a bankruptcy of ideas; there's just no money to develop a true C21 cab.

Richard Serra on Google Maps, at Greg.org / Craig Stephens' daily paintings / a huge gallery of mid-century fashion photography by John Rawlings of American Vogue (via ffffound) / Top to Toe: fashion for kids, an exhibition at the Museum of Childhood.

A few John Updike obituaries: New York Times, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times, International Herald Tribune. Related, the blog of death.

Pages from a teenage sketchpad, 1976, at smallritual's photoset, full of fascinating things: e.g. an 'early 1970s publicity brochure for the Soviet supersonic airliner Tupolev Tu-144', the County of London Plan 1946 (explained by no less than E.J.Carter and Erno Goldfinger), and some London Brutalism.

Landshare, 'linking people who want to grow their own food to space where they can grow it' / Even Cleveland, a weblog / Spectaculator / BBC homepage history, 1996 to 2006 at eyedropper's flickr stream / a huge page tracking the expensive diving watches owned by Jacques Cousteau and his aquatic pals / the Pineapple pit, how to grow tropical fruit in an unfriendly climate / paintings by Daniel Rich (via
Wrong Distance, which also posts Landscapes for the Aughts).

Schoolmap.org.uk / ecofont, use less ink. See also Dalton Maag's BT Directory Custom Font, which was designed to 'save around ten lines per page', 'Multiplied over the number of pages in The Phone Book and the number of directories printed each year, the cost of the font development was offset by a single print run'.

The Ruins of Fordlandia in Brazil (many thanks): "In a long history of tropical agriculture, never has such a vast scheme been entered in such a lavish manner, and with so little to show for the money. Mr. Ford's scheme is doomed to failure." There is even a Fordlandia website.

Digital art by Paul Brown / Aesthetic Echo, a web animation. Had this been a flight simulator, say circa 1988, our lives would have been complete (via delicious ghost) / a selection of websites by Jonathan Harris: word count, ten by ten, love lines, phylotaxis, we feel fine, universe and the now closed Time Capsule.
