Daniel Danger & His Tiny Media Empire

From the artist's site Tiny Media Empire...
"Daniel Danger is an illustrator and printmaker working out of New England. The son of a middle school art teacher married to a professional potter, Daniel was never going to be a mathematician or claims adjuster for a top rated insurance agency. Amidst old houses dead from the fallout of urban sprawl, railway bridges asleep from neglect, and trees that engulf everything; his work attempts to remind you of something you may have said to someone, or something someone may have said to you; back in that time period that's just too far away to remember clearly, but not so long ago you forgot about it completely. His memories and many of his friends are simply ghosts now, shaking him awake with mistimed alarm clocks and the sounds of a television from across the house. Documentation is key to get through the day. Things are always changing and it's easy to lose yourself."

The Art of Alchemy

Recently I found myself on a cyber walkabout through the Yale University Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library site. The amazing graphics from the Russian Revolution of 1905 just happened to be my first discovery. Not sure I'd *ever* return to dig deeper into the other collections of high res images, I dropped everything I should have been doing to post them....(My infamous short attention span=easily distracted and on to the next "pretty picture")...but I have gone back, more than once, to see what I may have missed on previous visits. These are just a few images from the Book of Secrets: Alchemy and the European Imagination 1500-2000 collection.
