Zoologischer Garten - Basel (Zebras), 1953
This remarkably evocative Mid-Century Modern poster for the Basel Zoo is one of the most beautiful examples of the International Typographic, or Swiss Style that was pioneered in Basel and Zurich in the early '50s. Based on legible modern typefaces, black and white photography (as opposed to illustration), and orderly grid-based structure, the overall impression was simple, clear and rational, while tightly structured and harmonious. While Barth's poster is incredibly creative, overlaying a herd of zebras across a field composed of a zebra pattern, its intent is playful and unexpected. Indeed, it fits any home's Safari Room admirably!
