Matt Novak, author of the Paleofuture blog, at an exhibition of his collection hosted by BBC in Hollywood (2012)



Matt Novak started the Paleofuture blog back in 2007, and he's been collecting vintage books, illustrations, and ephemera ever since.

The Novak Archive includes two main sections: 1) A FOIA library of government documents made available for free, and 2) An image archive of thousands of rare images that are often impossible to find anywhere else. 

Founded in June of 2016, the Novak Archive is still a work in progress. But check back each week, as new FOIA documents and images are being added all the time. If there's an old image that you've seen on Paleofuture that you're interested in, but don't see it here, contact Matt directly:
