Jean-Marie Donat – TeddyBär

Jean-Marie Donat's mildly creepy book of men dressed as polar bears

Jean-Marie Donat: This mysterious and mildly terrifying series of vintage photographs taken in Germany between the first World War and the 1960s has now been published in a fascinating book entitled TeddyBär. Finding an old photograph of a man dressed as a polar bear by accident, publisher and art collector Jean-Marie Donat held on to the picture for fifteen years without thinking much about it until discovering a second, then a third similar image. It was then that Jean-Marie Donat had the idea to collect more photographs of these interesting men dressed as polar bears, posing with passersby, on the beach, and even with Nazi soldiers. So strange yet very intriguing – love it! 🙂

Paris – New York: A Comparison

'Paris - New York' is an animated version of Vahram Muratyan’s book

Paris – New York: In 2012, Penguin Books published Vahram Muratyan’s book called ‘Paris versus New York’ and being huge fans of Vahram’s work, Nord Collective always wanted to create an animated version of the book. However, in order to make this tribute, they couldn’t source original illustrations directly, so they used Vahram’s ideas as the base, completely reworking the design and illustrations while trying to keep visual similarity to the original. Nord Collective animated all scenes and asked their dear friend The Cosmic Setter to write and perform original music and sound design for the ‘Paris – New York’ project. It’s fantastic – LOVE!
