Today is National Save the Eagles Day

Today is National Save the Eagles Day

Save the Eagles Day is observed annually on the 10th of January. Some species of eagles are on the endangered list. However, due to the work of scientists and the public, the Bald Eagle was removed from this list in June 2007. There are more than 70 species of eagles throughout the world. The only exception is Hawaii, where no species of eagles reside. Poaching, pesticides and other dangers continue to threaten eagle populations. Source: nationaldaycalendar.com.

Today in History: Herbert Matter born in 1907

Today in History: Herbert Matter born in 1907

Happy Birthday, Herbert Matter ! The Swiss-born American photographer and graphic designer would have turned 119 today. Matter studied art in Geneva and Paris and worked in France as a designer and photographer for Deberny and Peignot. In 1932 he returned to Switzerland where he created a remarkable series of photomontage posters for the national tourism office in Zurich, among them his famous poster compositions for Pontresina and “automobile travel” in Switzerland (published in 4 languages, the English version having perhaps the most fitting title). In 1936, Matter settled in New York where he took photographs for Vogue and Harper’s and later worked for the Museum of Modern Art.

The poster is part of our April 29 auction. For inquiries, email posterconnection@gmail.com.
