Caricature Map Of Europe 1914.

I signed up with StumbleUpon a few days ago and already I love it.
One of the first things I stumbled upon was a very impressive caricature map of Europe.
Take a look at this!

As usual,

It’s worth it.

The artist is Keith Thompson and his website can be found HERE.
I’d really recommend signing up with Stumble Upon too.
The more you use it and let it know your interests, the better it gets.

Sam Weber’s “Lord Of The Flies”.

I like to stay up late into the night and look at books I can’t afford.
I found a couple of illustrations by chance tonight which are blowing me away.

From a new version of William Golding’s “Lord Of The Flies“,
All are by artist Sam Weber.


Sam Weber said:
“Using contemporary illustration to accompany a much loved classic was an exciting challenge, made more so by the active involvement of the Golding Estate. Lord of The Flies is one of my favourite novels, and in many regards this opportunity was a true dream job.”

I think all of those are stunning.

Micro Frogs.

Look at this!

From Wired.com:

Scientists have discovered the Old World’s smallest species of frog living inside pitcher plants in the jungles of Southeast Asia’s Borneo.

The micro frogs, named Microhyla nepenthicola, grow to only 0.4 to 0.5 inches long — about the size of a pea. It was discovered living along the edge of a road in Kubah National Park in Borneo by a team of scientists searching for the world’s lost amphibians, species considered to be extinct that may still have remnant populations.

“I saw some specimens in museum collections that are over 100 years old,” biologist Indraneil Das, one of frog discovers, said in a press release. “Scientists presumably thought they were juveniles of other species, but it turns out they are adults of this newly-discovered micro species.”

The frog has been named after the species of pitcher plant that it needs to breed called Nepenthes ampullaria, one of many pitcher plant species in Borneo. The frogs attach their eggs to the sides of the pitcher, and the tadpoles grow in the watery liquid inside the plant.

They’re TINY!

Pretty cool eh?
Almost as cool as THIS.
