Classic framed poster for Les Aventures de Tintin for the “Au Pays des Soviets” edition of the comic book series by Belgian author Herge (a.k.a, Georges Remi). This poster is in the bathroom of the Belgian restaurant Petite Abeille in Tribeca, in New York City. The entire restaurant is decorated with Tintin artwork and dozens upon dozens of Tintin comic books in French are in stacks at the bar.
This week we added a striking new volume from Taschen to our library of coffee-table photography books at Global Graphica HQ. “Leroy Grannis, Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s” is a massive retrospective collection of iconic photographs by one of the leading image-makers of the the genre and the era. Grannis witnessed and exhaustively documented surfing’s modern evolution as sport and sub-culture in Southern California and Hawaii. We love the picture the editors at Taschen chose for the cover.
