I love the proportion scale image. It's like another age, the physical age... Where we actually had to do stuff.

I wish you guys would post something real in lieu of this bullshit. I can Google up some Lester B. if I want to. Come on. If you guys are going to purport to be the authorities on graphic design (and you do have Lorraine on your side), please drop the aggregator-esque crap. Make some real content. While fanny droolers may be into it, the rest of us are waiting for you to drop some real content. Swiss the shit out of it.

Dear Um,

I am really sorry you don't seem to like the TODAY postings.
It seems to me that EVERYTHING is connected and we should find beauty and joy where ever can these days.
But then everyone has the right to pass things by and most do.

By the way, what IS a 'fanny drooler', is that like anal leakage?

All the best and Happy New Year!
Eric

PS You should get to bed earlier.
PPS The WONDERFUL Lester Beall piece was a part of Michael Bierut's post... yell at him!

I <3 the second image from the tizzle.

PS Fanny could also mean vagina, if you are from the UK. Just throwing that out there.
