He sent us tMatt Novakhe best online archivists you may not know (want more paleo-future goodness? Listen to our Utnecast interview with Matt).

Bibliodyssey may be the most visually stunning website around. Culled from old books, Paul never ceases to amaze with his often beautiful, sometimes macabre discoveries.

Charlie Shopsin has cornered the market on 20th century popular science magazines. If you're looking for inspiration from pure American ingenuity, look no further than the Modern Mechanix blog.

While the name of this blog has never made sense to me, the collection of amateur photos from '50s and '60s tourists to American theme parks on Gorillas Don't Blog is pretty interesting to peruse.

The Animation Archive collects comic books, single-panel cartoons and animated films from all eras of illustrated history.
