1926 Silhouettenfilm von Lotte Reiniger, Musik von Wolfgang Zeller

"Mit dem Silhouettenfilm 'Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed' schuf Lotte Reiniger (1899 – 1981) den ersten langen Animationsfilm der Filmgeschichte und entwickelte Technik sowie Ästhetik dieses Genres bereits in den 20er Jahren zur künstlerischen Perfektion. Ihr Stil knüpft an die chinesischen Schattenspiele an, die sie durch die Möglichkeiten des Films erweiterte. Zu diesem an sich stummen Film (es gibt einige Zwischentitel) komponierte Wolfgang Zeller eine Tonspur für Orchester."

Positive and negative spaces form a skyline photo-alphabet

"Berlin–based photographer and illustrator Lisa Rienermann created this unique font out of buildings and blue skies while studying at the University of Duisburg–Essen; it was awarded a certificate of typographic excellence by the Type Directors Club New York back in 2007. 'It began with the 'Q,'' she has explained. 'I was in a kind of courtyard in Barcelona. I looked upward and saw houses, the blue sky and clouds. The more I looked, I saw that the houses formed a letter Q.' Click through for a better look at some of the letters."

(Caroline Stanley, 23 February 2011)

WW1 Razzle Dazzle ship camouflage

"Most camouflage is based on the idea of concealment and blending in with its surroundings. However another school of thought has argued for making the item in question appear to be a mashup of unrelated components. Naval camoufleurs found this theory particularly appealing. Blending didn't work because ships operated in two different and constantly changing color environments – sea and sky. Any camo that concealed in one environment was usually spectacularly conspicuous in others.

Norman Wilkinson, a British naval officer and painter, suggested a scheme that came to be known as Dazzle or Razzle Dazzle painting. Wilkinson believed that breaking up a ship's silhouette with brightly contrasting geometric designs would make it harder for U–boat captains to determine the ship's course."
