In keeping with the recent spate of food-related posts: There really isn’t much here that needs explaining. Scanwiches has detailed our national obsession with anything and everything between two slices of bread.
Here is another re-post from the folks at weetstraw via feastingneverstops. Images originally from Time Life’s 1982 book entitled Variety Meats. Either you’re with me on this one or you’re against me. A little personal back story…
Another terrific blog discovery yesterday: WEETSTRAW!! Animals are actually strange to draw because their anatomy makes less sense than one would expect. So for a fledgling attempt, this method may indeed work.
Okay, so I spent half the morning (well, actually, most of the morning) absorbed in this wacky blog called Feasting Never Stops. It’s the apotheosis of food meets design. These pictures are from the Smithsonian Institution collection, and all of the images are of the vittles sent along on the original Apollo Space Mission, or subsequent outer-galactic adventures. Tasty.
These pictures are from the Doxford Engine Works, taken between 1957 and 1958. WIlliam Doxford & Sons was an English shipbuilder going back as far as the later part of the 19th century. The factory floor is massive and seemingly either green or brown. Not to mention that with so many men milling about (literally), somewhat unfamiliar to our modern sensibility.
