Eric Hu: Archigram poster

Eric Hu: Archigram poster

A 17 ft poster by Eric Hu celebrating the works of 1960’s avant-garde architecture group, Archigram. The poster features a customized typeface, stacked vertically and then collaged and intermixed with pieces and artifacts of Archigram’s drawings.

Metaphorically, this creates an entirely new megastructure and through the scale of the poster, the work reflects the rigor and passion of Archigram. The poster is then also designed so that it can be folded like an accordion and used as a book.

Steinweiss. The Inventor of the Modern Album Cover

In Steinweiss. The Inventor of the Modern Album Cover, Taschen takes a look at the works of Alex Steinweiss, prolific artist and father of the modern album cover.

In 1940, as Columbia Records’ young new art director, Steinweiss pitched an idea: Why not replace the standard plain brown wrapper with an eye-catching illustration? The company took a chance, and within months its record sales increased by over 800 per cent.

Over the next three decades, Steinweiss made thousands of original artworks for classical, jazz, and popular record covers for Columbia, Decca, London, and Everest; as well as logos, labels, advertising material, even his own typeface, the Steinweiss Scrawl.
