Today in History: Coca-Cola bottle patented in 1915

101 years ago today, one of the most famous shapes in the world was patented by the Root Glass Company from Terre Haute, Indiana: the Coca-Cola bottle. While its form has evolved over the years, its shape is almost universally recognized today. The famous bottle has been incorporated in artworks by such renowned artists as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Salvador Dali. Click here for the story behind the bottle, or, here, for a visual timeline.

Happy Birthday, David Klein ! The American advertising designer would have turned 98 today! Klein is probably best known for his iconic travel posters he created for Trans World Airlines (TWA) during the 1950s and 1960s. His work has vastly grown in popularity during the last decade but many of his original posters are still available at affordable prices in today’s market. Here are a few of our favorites. Enjoy.

Today in History: Construction on the Golden Gate Bridge began in 1933

Today in History: Construction on the Golden Gate Bridge began in 1933

For a long time, bridging the San Francisco Bay with its dangerous currents and hurricanes was considered an incalculable risk. After all, a strait over 300 feet deep and more than a mile wide had to be linked. When Bank of America secured the funding for the project, work began on February 5, 1933. At the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. In addition, its two Art Deco style pillars were the tallest structures outside of New York. The bridge opened in May 1937. Construction offered many people work during the Great Depression. When hit with a severe earthquake in 1989, the bridge was not damaged. ‪#‎GoldenGate‬‪#‎SanFrancisco‬ ‪#‎GoldenGateBridge‬

Happy Birthday, Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002)

The Parisian poster artist would be 108 years old if he were still alive today.

We are proud to present two earlier (and somewhat rare) works by Raymond Savignac in our upcoming poster auction on November 7: Oceanic and Tricosteril. The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born as the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.

The full catalog is available at Invaluable or here.
