Austrian posters on ebay 

link
12:25  

About 130'000 posters are offered for sale each day on the american auction site www.ebay.com, and another 15'000 at the german branch www.ebay.de, and 2400 on www.ebay.fr . If I am starting to push some of these auctions on Poster Page or Poster Blog, I will end up in a snake pit of requests from everybody. But I make an exception for the current auction of 39 original posters from the estate of Hans Hofmann (1906 - 1973), a well known austrian designer, because austrian vintage posters do not appear on the market very often, and also because of the exceptionally high quality of the reproductions on these auction pages. Please note that I have no connection to the seller and do not endorse or recommend his sale in any way.

Biographies of swiss poster designers 

link
14:26  
I am presently writing some biographical articles on swiss poster designers for the Historisches Lexikon der Schweiz. I noticed that there is already some information available at their web site, in german, french and italian, for example on Otto Baumberger, Eugene Grasset, Emile Cardinaux, Max Bill and so on. It's worth a try if you need this kind of information.

Today is the 60. anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising against the german occupation in World War 2, during which more than 250 ' 000 people were killed and the city was largely destroyed. Some posters made by the insurgents have survived, among them the famous "Call to Arms!" (Do Broni!) by Mieczyslaw Jurgielewicz. A year before, in 1943, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising which also failed, extinguished the lives of the jewish population of Warsaw, which was about 375 ' 000 before the war.
