Be sure to scroll down, the really juicy and deep stuff is at the bottom of the page.

One thing I love about this site is that its not "official" -- its just one guy and his extensive (3000+ copies) collection. magnificent obsessions and all....

Fan-tastic! But somebody needs to buy that guy an overhead camera rig, or an industrial flatbed scanner. Still, a Herculean effort.

Google makes the collection easier to browse...

Thanks anastasiav, it's a wonderful site, and particularly in its (and I mean this in the best possible way) amateur feel. It is indeed a magnificant obsession, the result of the desire of one man to share his really really neat stuff.

Fantastic - and the ads have given me some cool design ideas that I can steal borrow.
