Simplistic Art brings together good reading and links / Good Type, Bad Type, a tumblr / the purest of treats, a weblog (occasionally nsfw) / pentimento / polarama, a weblog (usually nsfw) / we haven't scoured Strength Weekly for a while, but this post on Fairy Liquidity is an entertaining look at how the sprite disappeared from folklore and legend before rematerialising in the ad industry: 'It's odd that even today advertisements for all sorts of products are adorned with snappy, winsome little homunculi'.

R-O-B, 'Flexible Production of Building Elements', a robotised bricklayer and a winner at Wallpaper's 2010 Design Awards / Mockitecture, a weblog, especially the post on Extra-Ordinary Architecture, 'terrible and naughty' / Forgotten Ohio, via Guy.

Indian Book Depot, which produces some superb posters (via The Estrangement Gallery / Strength Weekly, a weblog / Metaltype, 'the place for Printers and Typesetters who remember the old days of Letterpress Printing to come and reminisce'.

FOOL, 'the transformative potential of objects' / World of Warcraft, an architectural perspective / Susanna Blasco's weblog / theGAME, the world of the highly desirable Casio Game Calculators.

Mountains of Paper, music related ephemera / Cumbernauld Town Centre, long celebrated by modernists and blasted by traditionalists, has held a design competition that will 'transform and develop the existing situation into a coherent town centre.'

Me Studio on the graphic evolution of The Highway Code: 'they also clearly show an evolution in design, fashion, automotive, typography and printing technology between those nine years... whereas the first one still displays some of the 'homely' naivety of the late fifties with kids sat on fences and young men in open-top sports cars etc. the second has a certain serious, more business like tone of voice to it, to me they represent and nicely illustrate the end of one era and the birth of the following one'.

Archive and Conquer, a tumblr, tapped into the new vogue for curation culture, linking to this essay, 'A Complimentary Rant on the State of Convenience at Repository. From Archive and Conquer, a paragraph that's worth quoting in full:

'I worry about the echo chamber of tumblrs and their ilk and the meaningless repetition and amplification of digital objects. Iím obsessed with the way that people collect, hoard, and re-broadcast photos and music and words without also creating their own. Iím not saying every tumblr reblogging pictures of hot girls in kitten earmuffs or grainy photos of Parisian cafes is as intentional and special as [Gabriel] Orozco's working tables, but the impulse, I think, is similar. We are overwhelmed, and if we can pick and chose a few objects that we like, put them in a place where we can keep them, it helps us to exercise some kind of control over the flood, even if it leads to visual/aural/literary ADD and a tawdry kind of exhibitionism: look at all these things I found. But while Iíd rather not bother with some peoplesí online collections, I think some are interesting as works in progress, and some seem like ready-made archives, perfect and complete.'
