Dazzle Camouflage

The concept of dazzle camouflage has finally come to my attention. That's right, a kind of deceptive bedazzling pattern applied to WWI & II war ships to confuse the enemy and make the ships less likely to be targeted. Where have I been? RISD's Fleet Library now houses the collection of 455 plans and 20 photos. And yes, there is an entire blog dedicated to this. Thank you, Sir Norman Wilkinson. [via Ministry of Type]
