The history of bread, as presented by the good folks at Sunbeam, ca. 1949. This is from the Lileks site, which is just brilliant both in terms of the stuff that this guy manages to find, as well as in terms of his commentary upon it. I aspire to be that good. Perhaps if I eat more bread, that will happen. That certainly does seem to be the tenor of this comic...the inevitable progress of history culminates not in the dictatorship of the proletariat, but in pre-sliced white sandwich bread. Everything has been leading up to that.

For good measure, check out his pages of curious lucre!
