BilbiOdyssey picks collections of beautifully illustrated manuscripts from the past. The only requirement seems to be that the sources are old and visually interesting, and eclectic doesn't even begin to cover the range of posting subjects and sources. The site features pages from 14th century Germanic religious verses, 15th century Japanese monster tales and 19th-century Arabic lithographs.

Be prepared to lose hours browsing, but at least you'll be enriching your brain.
