I have fantasies of living on my own in a tiny modern hovel too often to count. I imagine just living in a tiny functional space with lots of hidden storage and compartments that flip and slide. I can see myself sitting on that bed, wrapped up in my sheets and duvet, staring out the window with a mug of hot cocoa in my hands. Watching as the rain pours down on the citizens on the streets.
in 1964, Margaret Senior was commissioned to illustrate the disease of crops and plants for the New South Wales Government in Australia. She produced 80 illustrations demonstrating varieties of blights, fungi, and diseases that affect Australian crops. The illustrations themselves are not just useful, but handsome to look at. For a government-funded enterprise about plant diseases, they are actually quite beautiful. Look at this gallery for more examples
