I stumbled upon these typewriter ads. Oh the typography <3 und die Deutsche Sprache dabei ist einfach wie der Himmel.

Block Heavy Berthold, Romana, Herold Reklameschrift…

Lot’s more here.

The Art of Revolution

I got this huge (34 x 35 cm) posterbook “The Art of Revolution” (1970) from a dear friend the other day. It’s amazing, filled with 96 revolutionary posters from Cuba, Africa and Vietnam amongst others and an essay by Susan Sontag.

Above is a small selection. If posters nowadays only looked like this instead of every damn poster on the streets being a photograph. We need to start a revolution, a poster revolution, although a ‘real revolution’ wouldn’t be so bad right now given what’s going on in the world today.

Anni Albers

Albers primarily worked in textiles and, late in life, as a printmaker. At the Bauhaus, Albers experimented with new materials for weaving and executed richly coloured designs on paper for wall hangings and textiles in silk, cotton, and linen yarns in which the raw materials and components of structure became the source of beauty.

Anni Albers attended the Bauhaus as a student in 1922 where she later met and married Josef Albers. After its closure in 1933, they moved to Black Mountain College where she taught until 1949. Her groundbreaking exhibition of textiles at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1949 was the first of its kind and toured from 1951 until 1953, establishing Albers as the most famous weaver of the day.

Plurabelle - Our Fires

Drawings, animation and editing by Mattis Dovier:

“In addition to pixel art and frame by frame animation, graphics in this video are based on various influences. The main ones arise from the underground manga, especially Maruo Suehiro’s “ero-guro” or erotic-grotesque style (to name one), that mixes both horror and erotic genres. Human passions such as love and violence become exacerbated to their climax, making the man look like a crazy and decadent animal, the whole thing taking the form of a macabre poetry.”

WOOD TYPE

A fabulous blog about American wood type: with a focus on organizing and clarifying the historical importance of wood type, Professor David Shields is working to expand the information available on the often elusive histories of nineteenth and twentieth century typographic designs.

Check out the blog section in particular, there are some amazing gems in there.

Paradiso Posters by Martin Kaye

Martin Kaye was Paradiso’s longest serving in-house designer and screen-printer from 1972 to 1983. He designed and printed his posters in the basement of the Paradiso (Amsterdam’s famous poptemple) while famous and less well-known artists performed on the stage upstairs. He designed and cut out the type by hand and used the iris print technique to get the gradiant effects.

And he distributed the print run of about 120 copies himself through Amsterdam. :D
