There's nothing like a multifaceted collection of sites built up by the long-term efforts of a single person. Minneapolis-based newspaper columnist and author James Lileks ( ) is one such self-publisher who has a particular fascination for the quirky charm of mid-20th-century media and advertising. There's a lot posted here: unappetizing photos taken from cookbooks, postcards of diners, forgotten comic strips, matchbook covers, even some telegram art. What caps it all is Lileks's wry sense of humour in the commentary.
