Pattern porn

"Porn" is always used to described things we salivate and obsess over -- interior design, graphic design, furniture, fashion, etc. Ironic since sex porn is completely gross. In college I had a friend whose nickname was The Porn King. Thanks to him, I never need to see another naked person in a sexual situation ever again. I'm sorry but non-arty nudity is generally "meh" or repellent. People just don't look their best during relations.

Getting back on topic (and my mind out of the toilet) I've discovered the New York Public Library's Digital Gallery. All I can say is...DECO PATTERN PORN!

It just doesn't get better than this. I love technology.
