On this board, I collect wacky, bizarre, surreal and otherwise strange examples of technical documentation, particularly illustration. Submissions are welcome. I'm looking for the inexplicable, the surreal and the strange. Email me at darren at darrenbarefoot dot com if you've got something to share.
