60 Beautiful 404 Error Pages

404 error pages are not often seen and get underestimated. Some of them can be really interesting to look at when stumbled onto accidentally. Here are 60 of the many beautiful 404 error pages that I compiled. There are a lot more nice ones actually but think we save it for the next round. Enjoy!

    You forgot the Raven!
    http://www.plinko.net/nevermore.htm

    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I websurfed, weak and weary,
    …Over many a strange and spurious website of ‘hot chicks galore’,
    …While I clicked my fav’rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning,
    …And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour.
    …”‘Tis not possible,” I muttered, “give me back my cheap hardcore!” -
    Quoth the server, “404″.

  31. What a brilliant way to burnish your brand when things go wrong.

  32. Great post Johnson, check out http://beta.mnet.co.za/404 – Mnet is a TV broadcaster in South Africa and the 404 page fits perfectly.

  33. krishna says:

    Cool. This is a Wonderful collection bloke. Kudos to you. thumsup to u ;)

  34. BoltClock says:

    Who would’ve thought a 404 page would be one of the perfect places for a shoutbox, where such errors can then be reported? Genius!

    Love the others too.

  35. Johnson Koh says:

    Thanks Sadhu and Jon!

  36. Jon Bergan says:
