Banksy’s famous Girl With Red Balloon

One of the things that shook the art world in 2019 was the ‘planned happening’ of the self destruction of the familiar painting by Banksy. A shredder was built inside the painting’s framework and just after the auction took place it began it’s destructive work in front of the press… and all the photographers.

Alex Steinweiss

A selection of the great work of Alex Steinweiss, the inventor of the modern album cover. His work still remains as one of the finest examples of stylistic and tastefull drawing techniques. In 1939 he designed the cover for the album “Smash Song Hits” by The Richard Rodgers Orchestra, a photographically produced sleeve with some graphic elements, and for example the great sleeve for Teddy Wilson & Billie Holiday.  An album contained two to four and sometimes even six 12″ records. It became the prototype for hundreds of other album covers produced for Columbia Records. Look at the way he uses elements like hands, trees, houses and abstract figures for his drawings for all kind of genres, like classical music, jazz, latin, boogie woogie and more.

There’s a great book about his amazing album sleeves published by Benedict Taschen, and a smaller book by Jennifer McKnight-Trontz, Steinweiss himself and Steven Heller entitled For The Record; The Life And Work Of Alex Steinweiss, The Inventor Of The Album Cover. Check it out!

Trumpets & Trombones

Another nice instrument that features a lot of record sleeves, especially in the 1950’s and 1960’s is the trumpet. Miles Davis is of course the most famous player, together with the legendary Louis Armstrong and the dramatic character of Chet Baker, but there’s a lot more around when you search a little better. Nice graphic designs were made, like The Marvelous Margulis album, the Torrid Trumpet cover, The Jay & Kai LP and one of the best: Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five, Volume 2, by Jim Flora.

The first trumpets were made around 1500, so the instrument is known for more than 500 years now. The trumpet has one of the highest tones in the family of brass instruments and is used mostly in classical and jazz music and R&B music. And don’t forget latin and salsa. It’s an instrument to love or to hate. Choose for yourself.

Italian Romance

Italy is the ultimate country for (your) romance. Go to some of the outstanding harbor villages like Portofino and ask your girlfriend for her hand … , rent a Vespa scooter and go across Rome with your wife in a flamboyant dress, or visit the Venice canals in a canal boat for your honeymoon. Sings songs of love, eat pizza or pasta and drink chianti or have an icecream for desert. The Italian history can be seen and felt everywhere in this country. In the 1950’s when the Italian design industry became a global thing, scooters and small Fiat cars hit the roads and in Rome’s Cinecitta studios the Italian film industry conquered the world. Well, what more do i need too say …
