Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please?
After years of closing my doors to the public, I am officially announcing today that Professor Mercury’s Mercuriosities has returned to astonish and delight you with a legendary assortment of rarities.
This mystical collection of artifacts and wonders from the four corners of the world (and beyond) is available to be seen for the first time in a generation, and for perhaps the last time in another.
The first item in the collection is this marvelous Alchemy Starter Set.
After paying a dear price to the last surviving member of a very… talented… order, I have obtained everything you will need to begin your journey toward unlocking the secrets of the universe.
This set has been assembled using ancient techniques and skills to bring the artful science of alchemical studies to a new generation of seekers.
The set is dangerous, to say the very least, but I think you’ll find it very useful.
Availability is still very limited. But don’t worry, everyone will have a chance to see this item for themselves.
Step right up.
This is awesome.

Beastly GIFs Combine Gary Baseman Aesthetic With 3-D Wow
Illustrator Dain Fagerholm uses animated GIFs to simulate 3-D images by quickly alternating stereoscopic perspectives (fooling our brains into thinking that we’re seeing two views at once). A few photographers have pulled off that trick before, but Fagerholm uses a different medium: ink and sometimes Sharpie.
“I am interested in GIFs as an art form,” Fagerholm tells Co.Design. “I started making GIFs and posting them to Tumblr a few weeks ago and was surprised at how many reblogs the ‘Gem Creature GIF’ was getting (15,961 notes currently on Tumblr). I don’t know why people find these GIFs so striking.”

This literal java jacket is made from the same recycled paper and serves the practical function of a typical java jacket, but it looks a bit more stylish.
