Does anyone have 14,500 pounds to spend on the “good vs. evil” foosball table?

Does anyone know anything about this?

Boy, that’s awesome. Via Wooster Collective — all I know is that it was “seen in the Palazzo Reale in Milan” and it’s by Italian artist Gino De Dominicis.

The Originals

The title of the Backwards City post where I discovered these sites is called Nerd Crack — I think that’s about right.

What you see below are pieces of conceptual art designed by Ralph McQuarrie before and during the creation of the original trilogy. There are dozens of these!

Time Goes Photoshop

Filed under: art, photos — ted @ 9:49 am

Time magazine has a new cover design, and their first new issue of the new design features a Photoshopped picture of a crying Ronald Reagan.

Tear by Tim O’Brien.” Nowhere does it specifically state that the cover is a photo illustration—in other words, that it’s Photoshopped.

The Good Citizen’s Alphabet

Via the Design Observer, a complete scan of Bertrand Russell’s The Good Citizen’s Alphabet.

It is fascinating to think back to the early 1950s. A couple of Polish émigrés, having studied physics, architecture and painting, and having made a few art films and started a publishing company, sit down with a leading philosopher to make something whimsical and subversive. That an alphabet book was the outcome pleases me to no end.
