Mark Wagner

Mark Wagner makes incredible collages from dollar bills.

The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers-striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable… the foreign in the familiar.

Nice collection of grid-based sites and themes.

Similar to the Unfold site making it’s way around the internets yesterday, Nike Better World makes great use of parallax scrolling and clean layouts.

Explorations in Typography -

Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting (A Visual Textbook for Intermediate to Advanced Typography) is a vast collection of beautiful typesetting examples.

I spent a bit of time playing with the online type tool. Nice to try different fonts, and they have quite a few screen-friendly typefaces that I’d never heard of. Very very well done.

Lighttables.net

Similar (but not as polished) to Inkstagram, lightables.net takes your Flickr photostream and displays it in a nice, dark grid. Hopefully they’ll be adding features in the future, but evivdently it’s already a nice way to browse photos on the ol’ iPad.
