Zeppelin crash poster (link roundup)

One of two disaster-themed posters by Bart. And don't miss the book covers he created for John Dickie's Cosa Nostra: A History of the Sicilian Mafia.

And a few more links:

1. Northland Professional set up billboards throughout the city of Graz, covered in caps, gloves and scarves for people to take. Via.

2. There was a recent criminal trial where the defendant had a tattoo on each eyelid. The word "Lying" was on one, and "Eyes" was on the other. Via.

3. List of malls and restaurants that may be going out of business soon. My local mall is terrible (no nice restaurants, inadequate seating in the food court, parking lot full of crazy angry drivers, no movie theater) and yet it's packed every weekend. Via.

4. Article from 1859 complaining that chess was making people fat. Via.

*Previously: Mafia Tetris.

*Buy vintage chess sets at eBay.
