25 abandoned Yugoslavia monuments that look like they’re from the future

“These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place or where concentration camps stood. They were designed by different sculptors and architects, conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their ‘patriotic education.’ After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost. From 2006 to 2009, Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region with the help of a 1975 map of memorials, bringing before our eyes a series of melancholy yet striking images.”

A peek inside Alexander Graham Bell’s sketchbooks, joining the recently revealed sketchbooks of other great creators, including Samuel Beckett’s doodle-filled notebooks.

“This is a man!!”
Thanks for clearing that up, Alex. These sketchbooks are a treasure trove of creativity, though.

This really IS cool. Look inside the sketchbooks of well-known graphic designers, street artists, scientists, advertisers, and artists. Some really interesting stuff here…
