Today in History: Emil Cardinaux born in 1877

141 years ago today, Swiss poster designer and landscape artist, Emil Cardinaux, was born in Bern. Besides Burkhard Mangold, Cardinaux was probably the first Swiss artist who dedicated himself whole-heartedly to the medium of the poster, recognizing the true value and qualities of the art form. He became famous with his 1908 Zermatt poster of the Matterhorn, arguably one of the most influential Swiss tourism posters of all times. Cardinaux produced more than 130 posters, including many commercial advertising images.

Today in History: The Bikini

Today in History: The Bikini
Two small pieces of fabric caused major turmoil at the beaches at the end of the 1940s. French fashion designer Louis Reard gave them a name: bikini. The first bikini was presented on July 5, 1946 at a Paris fashion show. The rest is history.

Today in History: California 31st state of the United States in 1850

Today in History: California 31st state of the United States in 1850

California had been only part of the United States territory for two years (following the Mexican-American War) when it was admitted to the Union as the 31st state of the United States on September 9, 1850. The second largest state at the time (until the admission of Alaska), California is currently the most populous U.S. state. Blessed with beautiful beaches, mountains, and stunning scenery, it is home to Yosemite National Park, the world class city of San Francisco and tourist sensations ranging from the Golden Gate to Disneyland.
