The British Museum  has a beautiful collection of Charles Joseph Hullmandel's hand-drawn landscape letters. Hulmandel was an important figure in 19th century Brisith lithography. 

According to Wikipedia, he "developed a method for reproducing gradations in tones and for creating the effect of soft colour washes, which enabled the printed reproduction of Romantic landscape paintings" like the kind that J. M. W. Turner popularized.

Looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day gift for the designer in your life? Look no further, friends.

Either way, I suggest you dive into the depths of the Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology  and learn more about "time and space compression, hyperlinked memories, panic architecture, mobile technology, interface evaporation and how technology is changing the way we live."

BlinkerGrips are a cool bike add-on designed to help bikers indicate turns at dusk and at night. And while riders still have to use hand signals (I'm talking to you San Francisco cyclers), the LED lights are super easy to mount on handles and are powered by battery.
