toilet roll modernism

whilst visiting the ‘rodchenko’ expo at foam last week i noticed several images made by him for children’s books using cardboard figures and was struck by the similarity to those made by ‘piet zwart’ in his famous ‘het boek van PTT’ also made for children, zwart was always very much influenced by rodchenko as can be seen here (the two black and white photographs above and below are his, the rest are piet zwart) more images of the PTT book can be seen in ‘me stuff’ (posted in january 2008)
