Elektor's hand-crafted electronics artwork and cartoons
Today, graphics, artwork, and text we view on paper and on screens can be safely assumed to be of digital origin. That’s not implying the absence of human intelligence, but coming from a computer ‘somehow’. Due to CAD, the craftsmanship of making schematics, PCB layouts and wiring diagrams by hand in a truly educative way using a drawing table, masking tape, rubbers and an array of pens, has disappeared entirely. For reasons not entirely nostalgic, I found some of Elektor's works of art worthy of reproducing and describing in this graphics-dominated Retronics instalment. Enjoy the pictures!
