Japanese psychiatric images: The Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art offers an amazing trip--pun intended--through drug advertisements (and therefore through design and art trends) of the 1950s to today. The motifs run from ominous photos of the chronically distressed to Magritte-style surrealism in the '70s to imagery reminiscent of Arp, Man Ray, Dali, and cutesy anime. (Via Metafilter.)
