Anti-Masonic Poster Show Opening in Risiera di San Sabba

I'm pleased to announce that tomorrow, December 23rd at 6pm in Risiera di San Sabba, will be the opening of the show of posters from my collection, "Anti-masonic posters 1941-1942." Posters were created in Nazi-Germany to promote their Anti-Masonic/Anti-Semitic show in Belgrade in 1941. The show will be open until January 31, 2015.
“Risiera di San Sabba” was built in 1898. After September 8, 1943, the Nazi occupation forces used the premises as prison camp, headquarters where deported prisoners were sorted out to be sent to Germany and Poland, raided goods depot, prison and extermination camp for hostages, partisans, political and Jewish prisoners.
Stop by if you're around there.

Play Logo featured in LOGOGRAMA

Logograma: Logo Design for Dynamic Identities by Sandu Publishing included our logo for Play Restaurant at the Broadmoor Hotel.
The Play logo is included in the book because it consists of multiple variations of logos which can be adjusted and applied for different uses.

Publisher's statement
about the book's concept:
"Varying a logo makes a brand identity richer and more expressive, though regardless of how the original logo is developed, its dynamic forms must still convey the core values of the brand. Logograma reveals the infinite imaginative possibilities within any given brand by providing an insight into how new logos are generated through changes in colour, form, typography, images and other elements in order to leave a lasting visual impression on the people who see them."

From SPD's blog:

POW! Which Artwork Landed the Strongest Punch Ever?
by SPD Guest Editor, Steve Brodner

"We asked some of America's most powerful artists which pieces got THEIR blood up the most.
In our choice of going light or strong with graphic commentary in media, quite often the pull is toward stepping lightly and letting the text carry the heavy artillery. Editors and advertisers often prefer the punch to be hidden in the text, leaving the page design, for the sake of keeping the mercantile party polite, to just hint at the force of the subject matter.
The artists below (Edel Rodriguez, Brian Stauffer, Frances Jetter, Mirko Ilic and Peter Kuper) remind us that there are times when the jugular is the preferred target. The gravity of a story can be brilliantly reflected in art that pulls out all stops. I have asked these artists, who are masters of the art of blending graphic beauty with topical awareness and moral conviction to join me in picking a few pieces by THEIR favorite artists who have given them some of their greatest inspiration. And they also selected one of their own pieces."

Complete story here:

Brad Holland, "The Junkie," 1971, The New York Times, Op-Ed page I discovered this drawing in Graphis Annual (1972). It had such a powerful influence on me, that I decided to pay more attention to my editorial illustration. I was lucky in 1992, to become art director of the same Op-Ed Pages of The New York Times, where I was able to hire Brad Holland to do illustrations for me.
