What is 137 years old, carries a bit of Victorian aesthetics, and can get out of anything? Houdini, of course.

In March, Google celebrated Houdini’s 137 birthday with a doodle. The funky and fun thing about the doodle is that Google drew on Houdini’s show posters for the design, giving us a peek into late Victorian design. The aesthetics here is fairly clean simple with funky lettering, a line drawing of Houdini, and the fun border at the bottom (do look closely).
