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.

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.
