3SIXTY5 Collage-a-Day #17 for Friday, April 23, 2010

I love looking through vintage technical books, with their old-fashioned charts and diagrams and formal language. So nostalgic! Yet in their day, they were cutting edge technology. Someday someone will be rummaging in a flea market and get a hoot out of our computer books. But visually, I doubt that these will be nearly as interesting. I call this piece The Inventor. The images came from the following Dover Publications books:
Machinery and Mechanical Devices, William Rowe
Men: A Pictorial Archive from 19th Century Sources, Jim Harter
Haeckel's Art Forms from Nature CD ROM & Book, Ernst Haeckel
