    The distinctive style of movies of the golden age of Film Noir, that genre of Hollywood crime dramas infused with liberal doses of sex and cynicism, is captured in the striking graphics of these classic movie posters. The portrait that emerges of a darker side of mid-twentieth century America makes them a compelling resource for the study of that period as well as for film history archives.
    The light-hearted Gary Cooper / Barbara Stanwyck comedy “Ball of Fire” of 1941 that we include in this listing drives home this contrast…but no matter what, somebody is going to get burned...

Part one consists of seventy-five items on Situationism proper: Guy Debord, Raoul Vaneiegem, the INTERNATIONALE SITUATIONNISTE, various sections of the SI, as well as histories of the movement. Part two, forthcoming in a couple of weeks, will chronicle (in more than 100 items) the subsequent influence of Situationism.

    This listing contains a wide variety of pamphlets, brochures and catalogs devoted to products for the American home—products manufactured to promote comfort or convenience, often enhanced (so it is claimed) by aesthetic pleasure derived from innovative color or design. These “home product” advertising publications date primarily from the first half of the 20th century, and their relevance to the home is at times complicated by goods manufactured by firms seeking domestic as well as commercial outlets for their product .Then there are the curiosities, of which there appear to be no shortage: for example the “Secret Door Openers” (promoted in item 53871.) Some of the products included in the list, glowingly described by their manufacturers, were subsequently found to be health hazards (for instance, propane gas refrigerators, asbestos floor tiles, wood products enhanced by “toxic preservation” etc.). For those interested in oddities or historic exemplars associated with products for the home, or in the projection of the “new” or “modern” advanced by manufacturers in their focused appeals to female “home-makers,” the catalogs and brochures listed should prove interesting and enlightening. The catalog, organised according to subject and year of publication can be viewed as a pdf online here
