Pretty Loaded

Once upon a time, in a land of sputtering dial-up connections, websites took ages to load. Folks yearned for the 100% mark. But as soon as that figure arrived, the beloved preloader disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.

Pretty Loaded is an archive of preloaders that preload other preloaders... which in turn reveal yet more preloaders. It's a tribute to a vanishing art form amid a constantly changing digital landscape.

"Loading" was the first word my 10-year-old grandson learned to read, at about 2 1/2.
