This picture was taken by Thomas Kümmel in Lutherstadt Eisleben, Germany. Thanks so much Thomas for letting me use this on my blog. It literally took my breath away when I first saw it. There is so much going on in this picture I knew I had to use it for one of my Friday 1ne posts.
So, let the dissection begin! The letters on the top MILCH reads milk in German. The C and the H need to go off and get a room. For real. That connection they have, even though they aren’t touching, is electric. They fit together so perfectly. Maybe they don’t need to get a room. I’ll watch. Type porn! What.
Thomas let me know that the K logo on the top left of the M identifies it as a chain store of the former co-op “Konsum”. A smoke stack and a reaping hook all in one letterform?! It’s true! See for yourself.
That graveyard of ripped paper is where my eyes go for vacation. Can you blame me? So so beautiful. I love the contrast of the ripped paper craziness to the structured, bold letterforms above.
This picture is just stunning.
