Bunker Aesthetics

Having recently downgraded my iPhone for a military grade brick, I'm looking for suggestion on stuff online that scratch a weird asthetic itch I have regards finding stuff online (blogs, forums, product review sites, YouTube, tumblr etc) that discuss utilitarian tools, objects, environments and lifestyles that might fit the bill; from housing, to farming implements, to extremely ruggedised technology, whatever really!

What different types of visual and written 'instructions' are there?

I am working on a project that relies on different ways to present instructions. I want to collect as many ways as possible. These can be visual, written, or otherwise, but each 'type' of instruction must have a design aesthetic or formulaic quality that is particular to it. So, for instance, recipes are usually laid out in a certain way; architectural blueprints have a design that we all recognise, as do maps, exploded diagrams, algorithms, technical schematics, toolkits... Can you help me think of more?
