Daily bits, 1 of 5

Biomedical Ephemera, or: A Frog for Your Boils, an incredibly (and often incredibly disturbing) collection of historical imagery. Has a lot of common ground with the Scientific Illustration tumblr. While we’re regularly pointed towards tumblrs like welcome home, a hazy collection of photographs of someone’s life (lives?), objects, places and drawings, the single themed sites are always rather more satisfying. When done well, a tumblr is a brilliant place to evoke an atmosphere or sense of a way of life. It’s all about creating a tone, just like the way a good magazine or movie can instantly transport you somewhere else.
