And She Shall Dance and Sing Aloud

Two more old ad oddities sites I've stumbled upon.

One is called Modern Mechanix. It's like some guy has inherited his grandfather's old magazine collection and sits for many hours a day scanning articles and ads, then writing out all the copy in each ad under the image. One man's obsession is your entertainment.

Another is Devil Duck which appears to grab from other sites more often than not but sprinkles in some unique weirdness.

  • Some of those things at Modern Mechanix make pretty good sense now -- like the electric bike and the merry-go-round plane launcher. I could see the latter being used with remote aerial vehicles. I love those illustrations. Also, some of the type and layout looks a little New Yorkerey.
