Ghostly fingers

Every so often I come across a page on google books that looks like this. A little ghostly trace of how it came into being.

The killer dog poster is from a collection of Ghanaian movie posters at this lovely site here. 'In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for “mobile cinema” operators in Ghana to travel from town to town and village to village creating temporary cinemas. The touring film group would create a theatre by hooking up a TV and VCR onto a portable generator and playing the films for the people to see.'

Also incredibly wonderful is the collection El Rostro - from Magia blanca moderna o sea Magnetismo, hipnotismo, sugestion y espirtismo by Q.G. Polinntzieu (Barcelona,1899). Go and look - you should see all of them together, they're beautiful.

Raven variable matrix

I love this image - here a fantasy flying machine sculpture by Belgian artist Panamarenko is pictured in a shed or stable, with curious dogs inspecting it, and a bit of sunlight streaming in. It makes it seem like a dream kept in a secret place, like you're peeking in on something incredibly magical, something that is confusing to dogs and has hidden powers.
