    Is there a performing version of Reagan at Bitburg, in which Frank seems to quote a Bach organ toccata? Maybe they could just play the track during the concert.

    That’s some beautiful artwork. I’d love to have that framed.

    I most certainly agree. Here’s a high-res version of the poster for your printing pleasure. (Right-click, download file, yada yada) :)

    This is an excellent composition! I have shown it to a few graphic designers and artists and they are drooling over it. I don’t read German, but is there a contact name or e-mail address to request an artwork PDF? The JPEG is nice, but there there are a lot of artifacts if you zoom in. I would certainly ask for permission to reproduce it if I knew the source.

    P-Rip: here’s the source pdf. Now if anyone asks me to print one out and personally deliver it to their doorstep, I’m going to have to say no to that. :)

    To me, the two composers’ heads look as if they were created by importing bitmaps into Inkscape to create an SVG which then was probably scaled up. I’m not a graphics designer myself but play with Inkscape now and then to create artwork with an FZ element here and there (don’t tell GZ, though).

  7. Barry's Imaginary Publisher says:

    That may well be true Robert. However what I really like about this poster is the overall composition and the typography. Not to mention the usage of whitespace.

    PS: won’t tell GZ, promise :)

    Barry, thanks much for the PDF link. Most excellent! (The designer even manged to work in all those pesky promo logos without ruining it.)

    I don’t see a link for the Halloween 81 (TTNS) DVD, but I ordered it with OSD. I only had time to preview the the DVD last night, but is this the entire show (including the extras, which I also previewed. Or, my real question: Is Nig Biz missing from the DVD and if so, why?Maybe I just skipped past it.
