A good variety in this edition of Quipsologies.


A propos of last week’s election results, as the French rejected the European Union constitution — a collection of posters from May 1968.


On y reste… Back in Quipsologies Vol. 4, we linked to editor Frédéric Royer’s claims that the third issue of his satirical magazine, l’Anti-Américain, would not be printed following a visit from mysterious agents. Last week I received a mass email from M. Royer; announcing that both issues are now available on the web.


A few days after the French voted ‘Non’, the Dutch voted ‘Nee’. Here are two interesting graphics from the campaign:

On the left, a logo from the left-wing Comité Grondwet Nee, led by journalist Willem Bos.
A PDF file of the poster is available here.

On the right, the logo of Dutch under-minister for European Affairs, Atzo Nicolai’s website. When read sideways, the ‘E’ becomes a ‘nl’ for ‘Netherlands’.


A great collection of anonymous secrets mailed on homemade postcards. [Thanks to Antonio for the link]


Apple is expected to announce this week its switch from IBM to Intel processors.


Success is closer for addresses that end in .xxx, thanks to Icann.


A trilogy of posts about Star Wars’ first trilogy posters: Episode IV, Episode V and Episode VI. Sagalicious.


American Mutt barks in the wrong yard. Gets smacked with newspaper.

That .xxx domain would have made SO much sense back in 1999.

The article doesn't specify this. Charles White III and Drew Struzan collaborated on approximately three or more posters for Star Wars in 1978.

Sruzan was given a major feature in one of the early Airbrush Digest, Airbrush Action, How and/or Step By Step Graphic Magazines.

Don't recall which publication.

That collaboration certainly put Drew Struzan

on Radar. And now Struzan is almost as revered as BOB PECK. The Illustrator Choice; when it comes to depicting Cinematic Imagery.

Charlie White the master of Chrome, water droplets, surreal juxtaposition of imagery; has remained one of the most influential airbrush luminares ever. Although, he's retired from Illustration and concentrates mostly on Design.

lovely collection of posters in this edition of Quipsologies!

thought i'd share a few from my collection of political posters I've collected over the years:






Ah, if only posters ranked as high in the US as in the rest of the world.
