Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair.

Today in History: Woodstock Music Festival in 1969

50 years ago today, the Woodstock Music Festival opened in the small town of Bethal in upstate New York. Planned as a small event on a patch of farmland, the pop and rock festival went down in history: almost half a million rock fans came to Woodstock to celebrate “Three Days of Peace and Music.”

Today in History: Major blackout in 2003

Today in History: Major blackout in 2003

16 years ago today, massive power failures caused chaos across the eastern United States and Canada, hitting major cities such as New York and Ottawa. The worst power cut in US history affected more than 50 million people. Power was up and running again after nearly 30 hours. Most of the blame for the blackouts was laid on an Ohio-based plant operator, FirstEnergy, one of whose plants had shut down unexpectedly, cutting off a major supply route into the main electrical grid.

Today is World Elephant Day

Today is World Elephant Day

They might be wildlife icons, but, sadly, elephants are in crisis. World Elephant Day is a chance to show our love and support for these much-loved giants and raise awareness of the threats to their future in both Africa and Asia, ranging from ivory poachers and traffickers to loss of habitat. The occasion was founded by the Elephant Reintroduction Foundation, based in Thailand, working together with Canadian film-maker Patricia Sims. The launch of this international initiative in 2012 saw the release of the documentary film ‘Return to the Forest’, narrated by Star Trek legend William Shatner. The ideal way to mark the day is to donate to a charity helping elephants or organize an event in aid of these beautiful but threatened beasts. You could also watch a wildlife film about elephants or sign a petition to raise awareness. (source: http://www.daysoftheyear.com)

Today is National Vinyl Record Day

Today is National Vinyl Record Day

The vintage vinyl is almost as much of a classic as the bands themselves. Vinyl used to be the main means for commercial distribution of pop music from the 1950s through the early 1990s when the compact disk started to take over (which since has been replaced by digital downloads or streaming music). A vinyl record is also known as a gramophone record, phonograph record or simply a record – an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc which has an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. While vinyl left mainstream production in the early 1990s, it experienced a strong revival with collectors and audiophiles in the past decade.
