Man of Steel from a Baby’s Perspective

This is so adorable. That is all.

Amazing Poster for Aliens

Click Here

At first glance this might just look like a rather fuzzy, low-resolution image of a poster for 80s film Aliens. Take a closer look though. Click here to be taken to said closer look.

The poster is made up of 10, 126 tiny individual images, each of a scene from the movie. Very cleverly done – but you must click the link to fully appreciate it where you are able to zoom in and explore the poster more clearly. As an indcator of how big this image is, it is 8127 x 12302 and 100 megapixels.

World Book Day

Here’s a novel way to celebrate books on World Book Day (1st March 2012). Artist, Guy Laramee, carves intricate scenes out of stacked up hardbacks. Not quite celebrating the written word but anything that brings attention to books on World Book Day is a good thing. The level of detail in these works is quite something. I particularly like the mountainous scenes that are reminiscent of Chinese paddy-fields; I just hope they weren’t first editions!!
