A NEW YEAR


Yes, it's a new year and well, to be honest I just haven't been able to keep this blog updated. I think I'll probably post my Top Ten Albums Of 2013 and then maybe call it quits. Or I might still post things here from time to time. I don't know. The truth is, I've been pretty active lately on my new Tumblr -- which is kind of like a blog, but much easier to deal with. And just pictures. Images. Of all kinds. Here it is if you want to check it out: http://wonderfulworldofwonder.tumblr.com/

Drawing Of Willij Bake


I bought this mysterious old drawing of Willij Bake. I have no idea who Willij Bake is though. Was he recovering here from some illness (from February till June of 1916)? Whatever the case, it's a great drawing.

Nazi Naturists


I found this book the other day on "Atemgymnastik" (breathing exercises) from 1935. I later found out that author Hans Surén was an influential Nazi promoter of Nachtkultur (the German Naturist movement). The book is full of unusual illustrations and photographs. I was originally planning on cutting it up and using some of the images for collages but maybe it's really too nice of a book for that.

This blog has a really nice collection of homemade movie posters from Ghana: http://www.yorokobu.es/cartelesghana/ Some remind me of the same style as that one in my last post.

German Photo Album


This is a page from a German photo album I bought on a recent trip to Berlin. I like how this couple posed individually and then joined the photos together. Some very subtle hand-coloring too.

Pauze


This is my one-minute film entry in the Celluloid Remix competition. Made up of found footage downloaded from the site. "Pauze" means "break" or "intermission" in Dutch.
