Retronaut is a little gem coming to us from the UK and appeals to the inner geek on a number of levels. As described by The Guardian, Retronaut is “essentially an emporium of retro treasure, author Chris Wild invites us to shuttle between the ages: from shocking sculptures of the 1700s, to Kodachrome snaps of 1950s Piccadilly Circus, to biblical scenes captured by Google Earth. Rather than nostalgia or folly, the aim is enlightenment, wonder and the pleasure of weirdness”

This should feed your cravings for history, retro science, photography, journalism, art history, technology and really anything else that perks the attention of your curious brain.

Retronaut has been awesome for a while, but I only just found it, so I apologize if it’s old news for some of you. Regardless, I’ve added it to my shortlist of daily blog readings.
