1930s Zoo Prints

Visit-the-zoo-1930-s-framed-print

 

Copenhagen-based Henrik Dybdahl has put together a great collection of 1930s Zoo Prints.

The bold retro graphics in the series speak for themselves, but what is interesting (and obvious from the example above) is that rather than taking Scandinavian artifacts as his inspiration, the prints are recreations of American designs. The designs come from the employment project 'Works Progress Administration' set up in depression-era USA. As well as carrying out construction projects and creating employment, the project was responsible for some great graphic design as these prints show. Since they have now fallen out of copyright, Dybdahl is free to recreate them for a new audience. The A4 prints are sold framed for a very reasonable £19.95 each.

Visit Hus and Hem to see the full range.
