The patent for the Chia Pet? That’s birdcage liner. The patent for Orville and Wilbur Wright’s flying machine? Now that’s wall-worthy.

While these aren’t the genuine articles, Oliver Gal’s artists have done an amazing job of recreating the authentic blueprint applications of a number of world-changing products, from the Harley motorcycle and the revolver, to the surfboard and Gibson guitar. Check out the baseball bat from 1885, the cork extractor patent from 1930, or the blueprint for the bicycle form 1890. Frame it, put it on your wall, and you’ve got a piece of art, history lesson, and motivational poster all in one. That leads us to our philosophical question for the day: What came first, paper, or the patent for paper? [Purchase]
