Alejandro Jodorowsky tarot cards

Alejandro Jodorowsky (1929 – ) is born in Il Chile is a director, author, comics writer and spiritual guru.
Other than his numerous cult films such as Santa Sangre (1989), El Topo (1970), Fando & Lys (1968) and The Holy Moutain (1973), he is more than interested in the occult.
This lead him to spend almost a decade reconstructing the original form of the Tarot de Marseille. He said he also vividly remembers how, at 20, he first saw an old (and, he said, naked) woman in his native Chile give a tarot reading, and was instantly intrigued. He has been a collector of tarot cards ever since.
Below you’ll find some photos of the ones he helped to reconstruct :

Krzysztof Kieslowski original film posters

One could say I’m very interested in design, especially film posters, which I consider, are at times, works of art in their own right.

I think Poland shines in this department. I have not examined the reasons why but I always find their visual work pretty impressive. Let’s take these 3 film posters for Krzysztof Kieslowski’s movies; they represent what was considered a good marketing strategy at the time, what the public thought was an interesting image to look at and the originality of the artistĀ Andrzej Pagowski.
Pagowski is born in 1953 in Warsaw and started as a cartoonist and book designer while creating his advertising agency “Studio P”.

My 3 favorite Lauren Bacall covers

Before Hollywood’s contemporary fascination with everything Retro, there were actual actors and actresses who embodied this very notion of style and actually worked hard at their craft, for e.g Lauren Bacall. She was not just another beautiful face who played the femme fatal in several film-noirs such as “The Big Sleep” (1946), “Dark Passage” (1947) etc. but also shined on Broadway.

Mrs. Bogart herself graced these following covers from Sweden, Montreal and UK respectively, proving once again, that magazines are just not what they used to be…

Lauren Bacall. “Filmjournalen”. Sweden. 1952
All rights go to Filmjournalien magazine.

Lauren Bacall. “Le Film” magazine. Canada, June 1954.
