The Design of Dissent Show, Romanian Design Week 2017

I just got a few images of the Design of Dissent show at Romanian Design Week in Bucharest.

The show features art from the upcoming new extended edition of The Design of Dissent
by Milton Glaser and I published by Rockport Publishers.
The book will be released in September of this year.

Special thank you to Ovidiu Hrin who organized and designed the show.

Dan Dare, finally makes is from deep space.

From deep space and a time-machine (1960) straight to my arms.
"Dan Dare" by Bruce Cornwell from Eagle Magazine, episode 2, page 2, 1960.
I was totally surprised how small the original art actually is (24 x 31cm or 9.5 x 12.25in.)
It's almost the same size as it was when it was published.

More about "Dan Dare" here.

She's finally mine.

After waiting for her for so many years she finally gentle fell into my arms and said "I'm yours."

And in the background a man was singing:
"Wasn’t hard to love you
Didn’t have to try
Wasn’t hard to love you
Didn’t have to try
Held you for a little while
My Oh My Oh My"
