Rudolph de Harak

US designer Rudolph de Harak (1924 – 2002) is mostly known for his book covers and for the album sleeves of Westminster Records. His magnum opus is considered the 1960’s design for McGraw-Hill paperbacks which brought him to produce nearly 350 covers on a multiplicity of subjects ranging from philosophy to science, anthropology and psychology.

His interpretation of each subject is always subtle and innovative as he experimented with a variety of visual arts styles such as op-art as well as abstract expressionism or conceptual art or even Max Bill’s Swiss modernism.

His main effort is to continuously reduce the number of forms and colors and to limit the number of typefaces in order to better express complex notions and concepts. The covers are devoid of any straightforward symbolism and they usually show an abstract quality, far from being mere illustrations of an idea.

This one of a kind sports car features an impeccable 2.0 litre 187hp engine sourced from a Formula 2 car, and a unique aluminium body that was hand-beaten into shape and welded together, giving it a particular look, thanks to its raw, unpainted finish.

Proposal for Russian Olympic Cycling Team 1992

This is not actually a bike. It’s a piece by an artist named Daniel Bragin, who was born in Moscow but lives and works in London and Amsterdam. The correct title of the work is Proposal for Russian Olympic Cycling Team 1992 – a statement about the new, emerging Russia.
