Issue No. 7

Expo 67 Canadian Pulp and Paper Pavilion
Along with the 1976 Denver Winter Olympics poster, the Pulp and Paper Pavilion poster for Expo67 is my holy grail of vintage design objects. Unlike the Denver poster, I’ve never found it for sale, and I’ve been looking for over a decade. It’s rare and perfect. The poster was designed by Ernst Roch in 1967 for the Pulp and Paper Pavilion, a building at Expo67 sponsored by Canadian Pulp & Paper Association that featured a forest-like roofline. Roch highlights the unique pavilion roof with the basic geometric shapes. The text and logo divide the layout into thirds, creating a prime example of the International Typographic Style. Read more about the poster at Canada Modern.
Optik Books Collecting Graphic Design
This book, published by Optik Books, written by Jens Müller, and designed by Studio Vista, presents ten specialized graphic design archives and collections from curators and collectors. They tell the stories behind the artifacts in in-depth interviews. The book features collections from Graphic Design Documentation Center of Aiap, Canada Modern, Letterform Archive, Rochester Institute of Technology, Swiss Graphic Design Foundation, and more.
André Pasture Graphic Designer 
Even after all these years of searching for mid-century graphic design, I still get so excited when I discover work from a designer that I’ve never heard of before. While surfing through the endless results on Pinterest, I came across the work of André Pasture, a French-Belgian designer who created some beautiful posters during the 1960s and 70s. There isn’t much info on him, but I did find this gallery of his poster work. Every single design is excellent. The two pieces pictured here are posters he made for the Trans Europ Express railway company. I found this interesting article about the railway’s posters that mentions these two pieces.
Fernando Gasperin CGI Artist
It just blows my mind how far 3D rendering has come. Most rendering software back in the 90s wasn’t great at simulating the physical behavior of light. Ray tracing was in its infancy, and achieving a life-like image was very difficult. Now, rendered images are hard to distinguish from digital photos. Have a look at Fernando Gasperin’s interior renderings. Aesthetically I love them, but what fascinates me most is how real they look.

Pleated B Villa bergmeisterwolf
Pleated B Villa is a residential home in Austria designed by the architecture firm, bergmeisterwolf. The design features a bare concrete exterior void of any superfluous features.
Ceci Photography
I’m currently obsessed with Ceci’s film photography. She shoots on Kodak Gold 35mm film and the colors are incredible and her photos have this lovely vintage feel to them.
Euphoria Season 2
I’ve never watched the HBO show Euphoria, but I’ve heard it’s excellent, and now I learned that Season 2 was shot entirely on film. 🤯 That’s pretty insane and awesome, and it looks incredible. Even better is that this is the first time Kodak Ektachrome film has been used to this degree since it was resurrected in 2018. Film is making a massive comeback, and I’m loving it.
William Basinski The Disintegration Loops
While transferring recordings he made in the 80s from tape to a digital format, American composer William Basinski noticed that the tapes gradually deteriorated with each pass through the tape head. He kept looping the tapes until the sound was filled with gaps, pops, and cracks. Basinski turned these lo-fi recordings into a series of four albums called The Disintegration Loops and completed the project on the morning of the 9/11 attacks. The album covers are stills from footage Basinski took of NYC after the collapse of the World Trade Center. The minimal composition is hauntingly beautiful.
