Just to repeat my comment in the Metatalk thread, and highlight the coolest thing I've found there so far:

It's worth it just for these (1,2) condom joke postcards alone. The guy found contemporary illustrations of euphemisms for 'condom' (in two languages) that Joyce referenced. Wow. Really great stuff.

By the way, I stood atop Martello Tower for the first time just four days ago (photo).

What an impressive project. I might just have to dust off Ulysses now. To read while eating gorgonzolla cheese.

Whoa, whoa whoa there cortex. Is it too much to ask for an NSFW in regards to the Jalap nudie postcard?

Just kidding mate. The floppy teats are fine for work and this is a singularly good posting of wonderful Joycean ephemeral goodness. If only I had the whiskey to go with it.

Jalap is indeed a great purgative.

No credit due me—I just followed the spot-on suggestion in the metatalk followup to the Music post about the AskMe thread.

It was me. It was all me. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. :)

That's a mighty fine collection of scans. Satisfied on three fronts: 3-D photography, vintage typography pr0n, and a little titillation. Needed some kittens, though.

Mr Bloom watched curiously, kindly the lithe black form. Clean to see: the gloss of her sleek hide, the white button under the butt of her tail, the green flashing eyes. He bent down to her, his hands on his knees.
--Milk for the pussens, he said.
--Mrkgnao! the cat cried.

Nice. I'm from Dun Laoghaire/Kingstown so I'm getting a real kick out of the postcards of there and thereabouts. They're great. Almost washes all those childhood memories of being dragged out to Sandycove for Bloomsday "celebrations" with eccentric middle agers in fancy dress away .....

Awesome. I swoon. Thank you.
