When the King of Comedy Posters Set His Surreal Sights on the World of Rock ?n? Roll

quote [ The multiverse of movie posters is so vast, so inexhaustible, that one collector can choose to focus exclusively on monster movies from the 1930s, another can specialize in Westerns from the 1950s, and a third can decide to go deep on French New Wave cinema from the 1960s, and all would be said to collect movie posters. ]

As a rock and roll poster

Hershey Vector Font

quote [ The structure is basically as follows: each character consists of a number 1->4000 (not all used) in column 0:4, the number of vertices in columns 5:7, the left hand position in column 8, the right hand position in column 9, and finally the vertices in single character pairs. All coordinates are given relative to the ascii value of 'R'. If the coordinate value is " R" that indicates a pen up operation. ]

Looking up plotter letters like the one in the recent typewriter post I found that most online resources stem from this archaic vector code.

Say Cheese! How Bad Photography Has Changed Our Definition of Good Pictures

quote [ ?Art is like a joke, either you get it or you don?t.? So it was explained to me in the late 1970s by photographer Randy Eriksen, whose cheeky observation about the importance of context to one?s appreciation of either comedy or art could have been a parenthetical second subtitle for author and educator Kim Beil?s ?Good Pictures: A History of Popular Photography? (Stanford University Press, 2020). ]
